ENMAX Projects

ENMAX Power Corporation (ENMAX) has started engaging stakeholders in Ward 1 regarding two upcoming projects in the Tuscany and Varsity communities. All changes will occur on existing ENMAX property.

Tuscany - ENMAX No. 36 Substation Project
The current proposal is to replace an autotransformer with one of higher capacity at ENMAX No.36 Substation located in the Tuscany Community, at 10202 Bearspaw Dam Road NW. This project includes adding and modifying any associated equipment required for the transmission development. The proposed project aims to improve reliability of the substation and electricity services.

Proposed Schedule
ENMAX plans to file the Facility Application in July 2018. The application will be going to the Province through the Alberta Utilities Commission and The City will have no involvement in the public engagement and appeal processes.
If approvals are granted, construction is expected to begin in September 2018, followed by a proposed in-service date of December 2018.

Varsity - ENMAX No. 16 Substation Project
The upcoming project is to upgrade the ENMAX No.36 Substation located in the Varsity Community, at 5430 53 Ave NW. This project consists of installing new switchgear and associated protection controls, and the construction of a new control building and expansion of the current fence. The proposed project will mitigate safety concerns and improve substation and electricity services.

Proposed Schedule
ENMAX plans to file the Facility Application in June 2018. Like the no. 36 Substation project, the application will be going to the Province and The City will have no involvement in the public engagement and appeal processes.
If approvals are granted, construction is expected to begin in March 2019, followed by a proposed in-service date of July 2020.

More information will be available for each project, once the respective application processes are completed.
