Fast-tracked scheduling to increase substation capacity
69kV Substation Relocation
Salas O’Brien partnered with this Fortune 500 Power Company to provide a design solution for their existing substation exceeding capacity and experiencing 10% load growth per year. As a result, the location and layout helped reduce the station’s footprint while allowing for continued service during construction. To efficiently use time and resources, we implemented a prefabricated bus design wherein the control house was built and wired offsite, delivered as one complete system, and then connected to the yard equipment in the field. This drastically reduced field construction time, resulting in cost savings for the client. In addition, our team provided complete documentation of all sub-station equipment to meet
NERC FAC-008 & PRC5 government compliance requirements.
