BOLD began developing its 230-kV design in the fall of 2014. The design follows the elegant lines of its larger sibling and delivers the same increase in capacity. The 230-kV version is essentially a scaled-down version of the 345-kV tower. Depending on project needs and requirements, 2-bundle or 3-bundle conductor arrangements can be utilized.
