Southwest Louisiana 69kV Improvement Project

The Southwest Louisiana 69-kV Improvement Project involves replacing the existing Colonial Welsh tap line with two new 138-kV lines. The new line will run from the Lake Charles Bulk substation to a new Henning substation and terminate at the Bayou Cover substation. The project also involves installing a new 69-kV line between the new Henning Substation and the existing Carter Substation, rebuilding the existing Carter-Serpent and Compton-Elton lines, and finally installing two new lines from the new Henning Substation to the Line 13 tap.
