BPA proposes to replace aging equipment at its Celilo converter station and to upgrade equipment on the Celilo-Sylmar 500-kilovolt (kV) transmission line from the Celilo converter station in The Dalles, Oregon to the Nevada-Oregon border (265 miles) where BPA's ownership of the 846-mile line terminates.

The project would modernize and simplify the equipment at Celilo, install four reinforced towers and upgraded hardware at selected locations on the northern part of the DC line. 

Contingent on completing appropriate environmental review, construction would start in fall 2013.
