$70 M transmission line to Saskatchewan green-lit by Manitoba government

Canada: Manitoba Hydro has been given the green light to begin construction on a new, 80 km transmission line to Saskatchewan.

The line, which the Crown corporation says will run between a Hydro station just south of Birtle, Man., to the Saskatchewan border at Tantallon, Sask., was pegged to cost about $70 M in 2018 and will facilitate the sale of power to Saskatchewan.

The line is slated to be completed by mid-2021.
