Genus was engaged to perform the fabrication, supply and installation of approximately 1.2km of single-circuit
220kV transmission l ine from the existing terminal tower at West Angelas 220/33kV substation to the landing gantry at the West Angelas Power Station.

The transmission line included the installation of 4 x steel lattice towers up to 42m including the construction of pad and chimney type foundations, construction of a new access track, assembly and erection of towers including electrical hardware and the installation of single circuit configuration conductors and OPGW.
