The WATL project is about a 500kV HVDC (High Volgage Direct Current). The transmission line has a length of 485 km and is in operation in Canada (Edmonton to Calgary) since 2014. A total of 3,500 km transmission line conductor on 950 masts was needed, furthermore 20,000 tons of steel have been used and of that approximately 450 tons of fitting material are from Mosdorfer.


Mosdorfer supplied:

  • approx. 2,700 V–suspension clamps
    • From that 340 are 4x suspension clamps and
    • 2,000 Double V-chains
  • approx. 1,400 suspension clamps
  • approx. 1,400 tension clamps
    • From that approx. 1,000 double tension clamps and
    • 350 4x– tension clamps
  • Maximal transmission performance: 1,000 MW
