Officials with Nova Scotia Power say work in the Aulds Cove area and across the Strait of Canso is still on hold.
Tiffany Chase, a spokesperson for NSP, says they’re still reviewing a recent pilot line pulling incident.
Officials said the pilot line fell when they were attempting to install it on the new transmission towers in the area Dec. 10.
Chase tells The Hawk they started discussions again in early January.
“We began a review of the incident immediately following the incident in mid-December; that review continued through,” she says. “Of course, we had a few storms that staff were dealing with over the holidays, so the review resumed in early January and will continue.”
Chase says they’ll probably review the incident for several weeks.
She says they’re working to continue the project.
“Our discussions with employees, as well as contractor crews, continue at this time, as well as our review of the engineering plan and our safety plan that had risk mitigation measures in place,” she says. “We’re reviewing all aspects of our design and engineering plan.”
Chase says the work will resume once the review is completed.
She says they’ll have a better estimate of how much work is left once the project resumes.
