Pepco Holdings Inc. (PHI) has appointed Bob Jubic as the new project manager for the Mid-Atlantic Power Pathway (MAPP), a 150-mile high-voltage transmission line that will provide a second power delivery route for customers on the Delmarva Peninsula when completed in 2014.
The 500 kV line will resolve regional reliability issues and also provide additional import capacity to the Washington area and to Charles, Prince George's and Calvert counties in southern Maryland, according to PHI.
Currently PHI's manager of environmental planning, Jubic has been instrumental in the planning, licensing and environmental permitting for many of the company's transmission lines constructed in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and the District of Columbia since he joined the company in 1986.
As MAPP project manager, he succeeds Vincent Maione, whose promotion to president of the Atlantic City Electric Region was announced earlier this month.
‘Bob's extensive experience and knowledge of the permitting process and successful track record in working with stakeholders to resolve sensitive environmental issues makes him the ideal candidate to complete the MAPP project,’ says William M. Gausman, PHI's senior vice president for asset management and planning.
Electric customers on the Delmarva Peninsula are currently dependent on a single point of connection for power from the north and a steadily decreasing amount of locally generated electricity to meet their needs despite population growth and increasing demand for power.
