West Substation Conversion

DGR provided design, procurement, construction administration services for conversion of the existing substation needed to accommodate generation interconnection from the new Red Rock Hydro Project.  Project increased area transmission reliability and local load serving capability.

The project required conversion of existing 69 kV single bus into a six-position ring bus.  Required using existing equipment, relocating existing equipment, and installing new equipment.  Required extensive design planning and outage coordination to keep existing high-voltage and control circuits energized throughout construction.  Included full protection and control replacement.

Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation

The project was bid and came in under budget. Manhole lids were raised to provide better access in some areas, and rehabilitation of the sewer system was completed to give another 50 years of life to the City’s much-needed infrastructure.
