ITC Selects Michigan-based M.J. Electric As Contractor For First Phase Of Thumb Loop Transmission Line Construction

About the Thumb Loop Project

The Thumb Loop project consists of approximately 140 miles of double-circuit 345,000 volt (345 kV) transmission lines and four new substations.  It will serve as the "backbone" of a system designed to meet the identified maximum wind energy potential of the Thumb region and will be capable of supporting a maximum capacity of about 5,000 MW.  As an important link in the high-voltage transmission system in Michigan and the region, it also will contribute to reducing congestion, improving system reliability and facilitating wholesale market competition. Additional lines and facilities will be needed in the future as wind generators go into service and connect to the backbone system.  The project will be constructed in stages, with the first segment, the western side of the loop from Tuscola County to Huron County, scheduled to start construction in 2012 and finish in late 2013. The remainder is targeted for completion by 2015. For more information about the Thumb Loop project, please visit www.itctransco.com.
