PSE&G completes $1.2B Bergen-Linden OH/UG transmission project

USA, New Jersey: Public Service Electric and Gas Co. has completed and placed into service a complex Bergen-Linden Corridor project, constructed to address high transmission system fault currents and overloads.

The $1.2 billion project, constructed in three phases, consisted of building new 345 kV substations as well as overhead and underground facilities in a 35 km long corridor running from Bergen County, New Jersey, in the north, to Linden, New Jersey, in the central part of the state, reports T&D World.

The first two phases included upgrade of 32 km of double-circuit overhead lines from 138 kV to 345 kV. The third phase included construction of four new underground circuits in Bayonne, New Jersey, and Elizabeth, New Jersey, to create parallel paths between three existing substations and a new substation at the Newark Liberty International Airport.
