Title: “BOLD Engineering for a Bold Future”

Abstract: Billed as the next generation of transmission for its stylish design and greater capacity, BOLD Transmission, a new subsidiary of AEP Transmission Holding Company, boldly made its public debut with technology aimed at providing the industry with sound transmission solutions. The BOLD design offers superior value over traditional designs because it maximizes capacity in a given right-of-way and presents a more compact and aesthetically pleasing profile. BOLD Transmission is an advantage in the evolving competitive business environment and for companies seeking to rebuild existing infrastructure.
