Running a power line in remote Alaska

This is an amazing video of all the logistics and work involved to run a power line between two remote places in Alaska to bring hydroelectric power from one place to another.

The video was made by Wilson Construction Company of Canby, Oregon (just south of Portland). It’s definitely an infomercial but so what, it’s still fascinating.

    1. I agree Steve. Threading and pulling the line through that tower was incredible. The entire project was a huge engineering feat and the company that pulled it off is right down the road from you. You know anything about them?
