18-0033-EL-BTX: AEP Seaman-Sardinia (Sardinia Area Improvements) 138 kV Transmission Line Project

Case Number: 18-0033-EL-BTX
Project: AEP Seaman-Sardinia (Sardinia Area Improvements) 138 kV Transmission Line Project
Applicant: AEP Ohio Transco
Location: Brown County
Status: Staff investigation

AEP Ohio Transco proposes to construct  a 138 kilovolt (kV) looped tap from the nearby Hillsboro-Maysville 138 kV line (Kenton (LGEE) – Wildcat 138 kV Circuit) and the conversion of the existing 69 kV Sardinia Substation to 138 kV, allowing the existing 69 kV Seaman-Sardinia line and associated facilities to be retired. The Sardinia Substation fence line would also be expanded to accommodate new 138 kV equipment. The project would be approximately 4.45 miles long and run through Eagle Township in Brown County. AEP Ohio Transco anticipates building the new transmission line using several structure types, including steel monopoles. AEP Ohio Transco estimates project costs at approximately $19 million.
