Valard will install approximately 1,100 kilometres of 350-kilovolt overhead high-voltage direct current transmission line running from the Muskrat Falls Hydroelectric Generating Facility in central Labrador to Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula.

Valard's scope of work includes geomatic services, management of right-of-way clearing, access and reclamation, installation of concrete foundations, tower assembly and erection and conductor stringing.

Valard has begun mobilizing resources for the project, and estimates completion by summer 2017.
