Quanta Services' (NYSE:PWR) operating unit, Valard Construction, was awarded a contract by Labrador-Island Link Partnership to install transmission infrastructure for the Labrador-Island Transmission Link project.

"This is the largest individual transmission project ever awarded to Quanta, which reflects Nalcor Energy's confidence in our ability to safely deliver this project on schedule," says CEO Jim O'Neil.

Valard will install a 684 mile high-voltage direct current transmission line running from the Muskrat Falls Hydroelectric Generating Facility in central Labrador to Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula.
