Transmission and Distribution
We design, manage, and deliver transmission and distribution lines; perform analyses; and comply with land-use regulations through some of the toughest terrain in the country. We can also help negotiate right-of-way acquisitions for transmission and distribution line corridors and even stake distribution lines. We use PLS-CADD, GIS, and mapping solutions in our planning and design phases.
Recent Transmission and Distribution Projects
Designed the electrical system for a renewable energy distributive generation style project on an island in the British Virgin Islands. Existing power was generated by diesel generators and the goal of the project is […]
EEC has designed a two mile 115kV transmission line with 12.5kV underbuild and 1.8 miles of 34.5kV subtransmission line with 12.5kV underbuild. Work included coordination with PG&E for the 12.5kV underbuild design and cutovers. […]
230kV Switching Station – the switching station is configured as breaker and a half bus containing six 230kV, 2,000A breakers and provisions for six future breakers, with four transmission line terminals and four additional […]
Design of 20.7 miles of 230kV double circuit transmission line on steel poles using PLS-CADD and PLS-POLE. Design took into account having limited shadows on the solar panels causing poles and spans to be […]
EEC analyzed the six span 13.8kV design that included a 2,540 ft span for FEUS. EEC made recommendations for the crossing structures, tensions and marker ball placement.
Design of 2.5 miles of 115kV transmission line using T2 conductor on single pole wood tangent structures and self-supporting steel poles and foundations for corners and deadends using PLS-CADD and PLS-POLE. Engineering included routing, […]
Replacement of an existing 25kV line over several mesas, crossing the East River between Crested Butte and Gunnison. Work included survey-grade GPS mapping of the line route, PLS-CADD and PLS-Pole modeling of the line […]
