Buchanan Substation and Tap Line

Ulteig’s support of a new distribution substation site and 43.8 kV transmission tap line in Buchanan, Stutsman County, North Dakota, involved performing a title search, the development of a landowner database and the creation of a landowner aerial map for the route.

Ulteig negotiated easements with landowners along the 3.5-mile route. The team also completed a land value analysis within the project corridor and drafted easement documents and legal descriptions. Finally, the team successfully negotiated and secured signatures from all landowners, acting as liaison during construction and providing project deliverables to the Central Power Electric Cooperative organization.
