4DM, with SENES, was selected by the CCEG to identify and evaluate potential electric transmission corridors from Red Lake to 4 Keewaytinook Okimakanak member First Nations communities

The Central Corridor Energy Group (CCEG), comprised of 14 First Nations communities, is focused on the development of power transmission and green energy projects in northwestern Ontario on behalf of its members. CCEG is interested in identifying and assessing potential corridor options for a 115kV transmission line that would connect the Red Lake transmission node to 4 Keewaytinook Okimakanak (KO) member communities in remote areas of northwestern Ontario.

4DM, in partnership with SENES Consultants Ltd., has been selected by CCEG to identify, analyze, and evaluate potential corridors from Red Lake to 4 KO First Nations member communities. 4DM is using a numerical spatial routing model to optimize a corridor path based on available data and input from CCEG as well as affected community members. The modeling is a consensus approach accounting for opportunities and constraints to determine a least impact corridor. These results will be utilized as a starting point for the environmental assessment planning.
