The scope of the project was to establish a new greenfield Switching Station and Substation near Martensville, Saskatchewan. The Switching Station included two 230/138-13.8 kV 180/240/300 MVA auto transformers with 230 kV and 138 kV bus work.
The substation included two 138-25 kV 30/40/50 MVA transformers with ultimate provision for six 25 kV Distribution Feeder Bays.
