Sharyland Utilities picks Quanta Services for transmission services

Houston, June 7, 2011 — Sharyland Utilities has awarded Quanta Services a contract for transmission and infrastructure services as part of the utility's Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ) initiative. 

The contract encompasses construction services for three segments of 345,000-volt transmission lines totaling about 220 miles in Texas.

Under the contract, Quanta will oversee, manage and perform all construction activities related to the three segments: Hereford to White Deer (91.16 miles); White Deer to Silverton (66.56 miles); and Silverton to Cottonwood (64.53 miles).

The CREZ initiative was established by the Texas legislature in 2005 to help encourage the development of wind generation in Texas by facilitating the construction of needed electrical transmission lines to the areas of the state determined to have superior wind resources. These transmission lines are expected to improve the Texas electric transmission system and provide related benefits to customers.
