ITC Great Plains energizes Hugo-Valliant transmission line, substation

Novi, Mich., July 11, 2012 — ITC Great Plains, LLC, in conjunction with Western Farmers Electric Cooperative, placed its Hugo-Valliant high-voltage electric transmission line and substation project into service in southeastern Oklahoma.

The 18-mile, 345 kV line and 345 kV/138 kV substation were implemented to reduce system congestion, provide more efficient and cost-effective transmission of energy and increase access to a broader range of generation resources. The substation, near WFEC's Hugo power plant, provides a link to the WFEC 138 kV transmission system.

ITC's investment in a new high-voltage infrastructure in the Southwest Power Pool region is founded upon open access to the grid and collaboration with key energy stakeholders. The partnership with WFEC was crucial to the successful development of the Hugo-Valliant project.
