Transmission Line Construction, Design & Maintenance

Transmission construction and maintenance has been an integral part of Hydaker-Wheatlake’s continued success.  We have been building transmission lines since 1962 and have gained valuable knowledge and experience, enabling us to provide the best solutions based on our customer’s needs.  We work on voltages from 34.5kV to 500kV with our crews performing over 95% of the work on a transmission line. Because of this, HWC is able to control the flow of work and better manage the lines construction, including caisson foundation installation and SWPP measures.  Some of our services include:
