Zinniel Utility Contracting has been contracted to install 40 miles of underground power for Benco Electric in the area of Blue Earth in southern Minnesota. This unprecedented contract marks Zinniel’s largest project to date; a project of this size is rare for a smaller utility contractor, and we are excited to begin work with Benco. The overall goal of the project is to replace 40 miles of overhead power lines with underground lines, including both single- and three-phase sections. The project will consist mostly of plowing, but involve some drilling as well. We are scheduled to complete the project by July 1, 2013. It looks like we will be putting our new JT922 to good use.
