Ottumwa-Iowa/Missouri Border Transmission Project (MVP 7)

Reliable, sustainable, efficient energy is critical to the quality of life we enjoy. To improve electric reliability, enable more electric generating sources to connect to customers, and meet the region’s growing energy demands, ITC is building a new high-voltage electric transmission line in southern Iowa. 

The Ottumwa-Iowa/Missouri Border Transmission Project is part of a network of new 345 kV transmission lines planned and constructed by ITC Midwest and MidAmerican Energy Co. to serve the region. ITC Midwest and MidAmerican Energy Co. are each building a portion of the line from the Ottumwa Generating Station near Chillicothe, Iowa, approximately 40 miles south to the Iowa-Missouri border. The line will interconnect with a line being developed by Ameren Transmission Company that will span another 100 miles to the south in Missouri.

Construction of the ITC Midwest segment began in October 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in mid-2019.

Multiple Benefits
The Ottumwa-Border line is a portion of MP 7, one of 17 transmission projects that MISO, the independent transmission organization for 15 U.S. states and the Canadian province of Manitoba, studied and designated as a “Multi-Value Project” (MVP). The Ottumwa-Border line will bring four major types of benefits to Iowa and the rest of the MISO region: improved reliability, expanded access to generation sources, increased system efficiency, and economic investment.
