Panama Transmission Line

Peracon have successfully completed the design of a 132 km double circuit 230 kV transmission tower line for Minera Panama (a subsidiary of First Quantum Minerals Limited) in Panama, South America. The line will supply the Cobre Panama copper mine 120 km west of Panama City. Peracon’s involvement included:

PLS CADD profiling and optimisation of the double circuit tower line

Tower fabrication drawing review

Line route relocation due to land owner objection which resulted in tower modification

Vegetation modelling to minimise impact of tree clearing in the national forest

Stringing table and methodology preparation

Construction support

Site inspection on tower erection and stringing
