Kleinfelder provided several physical substation layouts for a large system expansion with an existing substation upgrade and the construction of an adjacent greenfield substation due to significant increase in power demand from a single customer. The scope included the addition of two redundant 50 MVA power transformers and the complete interconnect design to the existing 115 kV transmission system. Kleinfelder evaluated the available options and performed a cost-benefit analysis, presenting options to the owner and customer.
Kleinfelder helped our client mitigate risk—and revenue loss—of power outage by optimizing engineering construction sequencing. Furthermore, we recommended using existing infrastructure where possible to reduce construction cost, thereby adding even greater value.
