On the Fourth Line Project Skanska executed the engineering, material procurement and construction of a 1,292 Km high voltage line of 500 kV between the Piedradel Águilatransformer substation, in the Province of Neuquén, and the Abastotransformer substation, in the Province of Buenos Aires; running through the ChoeleChoelsubstations, in BahíaBlanca and Olavarría.
The Fourth Line Project construction was awarded to Transenerby the Electric Energy Generators and was approved by ENRE.
Skanska LA developed the basic and detailed engineering of the project, introducing new concepts for works of this nature, that improve not only the technologic aspects but also their effects on the environment.
The distinctive characteristic of this line is the implementation, for the first time in Argentina and in Latin America, of Cross Rope type metallic structures.
These towers consist in masts united by two steel cables (main and auxiliary). The main cable supports the isolator chains and the conductors. Each mast counts with two steel guys in order to ensure, the stability of the structure.
