They include on the one hand the aerial rehabilitation of about 46 km of line from the Péligre Centrale to the pylon #152, and on the other hand the construction of an underground transmission line from the pylon # 152 to the Nouveau Delmas substation in Port-au-Prince for a total distance of approximately 10 km. In addition, high and low voltage work at the end stations and repairs to the foundations and tower base are also part of the scope of the rehabilitation."
