Panama Transmission Line

panamaPeracon 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


Peracon’s experienced team were able to work closely with the client to meet their project requirements and schedule. Our understanding of the technical requirements enabled the design to be modified to allow for the stakeholder input, while still achieving the required engineering solution.
