Kanawha County, Clay County, and Roane County, West Virginia
25 miles of 138 kV right-of-way and over 60 miles of access road
Integrity Tree Services performed a 2-year land clearing project for an electric transmission company in West Virginia. The client’s main goal was to improve electric reliability and strengthen their electric transmission system. By the project’s completion, Integrity had cleared 25 miles of right-of-way and over 60 miles of access road.
Throughout this project, our crews overcame difficult, hilly terrain. There were challenges with the access route and environmental challenges, such as a large flood in September of 2018 that required crews to demobilize all of their equipment.
Our team utilized a wide variety of equipment to complete this project, including a track buncher, excavator mower, long-reach excavator, forestry mower, skid steer, UTVs, track chipper, and a wheeled jaraff.
The logical sequence to perform the tree work often required adjustment to ensure the line contractors and others contractors could perform their construction work. Since our work was construction schedule-based, it was imperative that our crews communicated well with everyone and kept their schedules intact.
