Design-Build Substation Upgrade

$1M – $5M | Eglin AFB, FL| Eglin AFB

This project involved the addition of one new 20MVA Transformer, associated 115kV switcher and removal and replacement of one new 20MVA Transformer in an active substation.

UNIQUE ATTRIBUTES: This project was completed without any down-time to the existing substation via coordinated switching schemes and commissioning.

PPS used hydra-slide rail system and hydraulic rams to position the new 80,000 LB transformers inside the existing substation as to not interrupt current operations. This required the use of a 450Ton crane to make the initial placement followed by the matting and movement use of hydra-slide tracks and equipment to achieve final placement for the new 20MVA transformers and the removal of the existing transformers.
