Chatham to Lakeshore Transmission Line
Southwestern Ontario

Aecon’s wholly owned subsidiary, Voltage Power, is building a new double-circuit 230-kilovolt transmission line from Hydro One’s Chatham Switching Station to the Lakeshore Switching Station. This new 49-km transmission line will help meet growing electricity needs in southwestern Ontario, providing approximately 400 megawatts of clean energy to the region. 

Aligned with the commitments of Aecon and Hydro One, a significant portion of the line will include procurement and purchases from qualified Indigenous businesses as subcontractors to Voltage Power.

The Chatham to Lakeshore Transmission Line is part of a network of infrastructure projects across southwest Ontario that will unlock the electrification potential of Ontario's economy to mitigate climate change and help address this forecasted demand.

The project is the largest of its kind in Canada and amongst the largest in the world. It will deliver a 250 megawatt / 1,000 megawatt-hour energy storage facility – ensuring the supply of clean, reliable electricity capacity for Ontario while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 4.1 million tonnes – the equivalent of taking 40,000 cars off the road every year.
