Transmission line survey work for Clear River Energy Center begins this summer

BURRILLVILLE – As part of the pre-engineering on the electric transmission line route for the proposed Clear River Energy Center, survey work will begin in early August, according to a July 12 statement from Duffy & Shanley Inc.

Chicago-based developer Invenergy Thermal Development LLC has proposed a 1,000-megawatt, gas-fired power plant. According to the release, National Grid will coordinate an Invenergy contractor to conduct soil tests and sampling along the 6.8-mile route from the proposed site, off Wallum Lake Road, to the existing National Grid switching station on Sherman Road.

Expected to take four to six weeks, the survey will be performed on private land and “in accordance with environmental permits and best practices,” according to the release.
