M. J. Electric (MJE) excels in the techniques required for transmission line construction and has demonstrated that ability by completing a wide range of projects nationwide. With literally thousands of miles of transmission line projects completed in the last 30 years, we understand what it takes to make a project successful. MJE’s depth of experience includes all sizes and types of transmission lines – from 765 kV to 69 kV – both overhead (on all types of towers) and underground. That experience allows us to offer our customers a valuable combination of expertise and experience tailored to the unique needs of utilities. MJE offers a broad range of construction and maintenance services for the transmission market including:
- Transmission through 765 kV
- Line Relocations & Reconductoring
- Pole Replacements
- Wood and Steel Pole Erection
- Steel Lattice Tower Erection
- Overhead & Underground Installation
- OPGW Installation
MJE provides these services in even the most difficult terrains and circumstances. Our teams use innovative approaches to provide planning and cost effective solutions address specific project needs. We find ways to manage the challenges that emerge in complex, high-risk installations while ensuring the highest levels of safety and the uncompromising quality of each project. We are resolute in our commitment to safety and environmental stewardship during all aspects of our projects. Our proactive approach to safety and our dedication to meet or exceed all regulatory and industry standards has resulted in an impressive safety record. MJE consistently achieves an OSHA incident rate better than half the industry average.
Through having access to specialized techniques and technologies, such as energized transmission services, there is no job MJE is unable to complete safely and efficiently. As part of the specialized services we provide for transmission customers, we have developed specialized processes for tower raising. MJE crews are able to prep and lift lattice structures of various voltages and conductor bundles sizes in order to increase transmission line clearance for utility customers. With the conductor remaining attached in its original configuration, leg extensions are installed up to 30 feet providing clearance to meet NERC requirements.
M. J. Electric is also involved in numerous long-term strategic relationships to perform electrical construction and maintenance services which deliver superior performance and added value to our customers. Through the identification of the customer’s core needs and the sharing of goals, these collaborative partnerships offer the most cost-efficient option to complement or supplement in-house resources. Significant benefits inherent to these partnerships are innovative and cost- and timesaving solutions, improved quality and safety, and enhanced management of risk.
