Our Specialties at a Glance
Over the years, we have developed an expertise in Hydroelectric projects by providing critical support to power generation throughout B.C. Our work includes repair and ongoing maintenance of existing dams, their infrastructure, and EPC run-of-river projects. These projects provide us the opportunity to showcase our unique ability to support Hydroelectric power generation while overcoming complex challenges from environment, terrain, and accessibility.
DENT clears and creates access for large transmission line projects to be completed in remote areas. Our assignments are technical and challenging due to conditions that allow only air or water access points for heavy equipment. Our work creates space for the foundation work, power poles, towers, and other systems resulting in the construction, upgrade, and maintenance of transmission lines.
DENT has been constructing substations since the early 1990's. These projects exist throughout BC and vary in size, access, and complexity. A project of significance for our organization was completing the civil portions of one of the largest substations to date in Western Canada: Site C Southbank Substation. DENT’s history of constructing these projects has shown effective risk mitigation and advanced knowledge of methodology resulting in the highest quality product.
