Canadian Niagara Power Inc. Announces Rebuild of the International Power Line

Saturday, November 8, 2014

For Release: Immediate, November 8, 2014

Contact: Kristine Carmichael, (905) 871-0330 x 3209,

Fort Erie ON – Canadian Niagara Power Inc. ("CNPI") is pleased to announce the successful demolition and removal of the International Power Line ("IPL") this morning which spanned the Niagara River from its Queen Street Tower in Fort Erie to the Buffalo High Tower in New York.

The IPL removal consisted of an implosion cutting technique to cut all six lines. The project was carried out by CNPI’s contractor, O’Connell Electric, with the cooperation of National Grid in New York. Approximately 40 agencies on both sides of the border were involved in this project.

CNPI looks forward to the next phase of this project which will be the dismantling of the 100 year old towers on each side of the river and the rebuild of the new IPL scheduled for the fall of 2015. CNPI considers this international transmission corridor to be of great strategic value as it interconnects the Ontario CNPI transmission system with the National Grid transmission system in New York.

CNPI wishes to thank all those involved in the planning and execution of this project.
