Switchyard Installation

North Carolina
The project scope included demolition of existing equipment foundations, all existing switchyard equipment, disconnect switches, circuit breakers and the existing 64 KV oil filled transformer. Installation of a new 12 MV dry type transformer, circuit breakers and disconnect switches, all associated support structures, and auxiliary equipment.

New concrete equipment foundations and pads for the new switchyard equipment as mentioned above were placed prior to setting of the new transformer and auxiliary equipment. New foundations and equipment were tied into the existing yard grounding system. Structural support steel required for the new installation was fabricated in our Spartanburg fabrication shop and delivered to the project site utilizing our in-house transportation capabilities. Crowder completed final site grading and placement of crushed stone base throughout the yard after placement of the equipment. New fencing was installed around the perimeter of the Switchyard completing the reconstruction of the facility.
