Substation Structure Assessment

Substations contain some of the most important, expensive, and difficult-to-replace equipment on the grid. While many substation structures are mounted on concrete foundations, which provide a barrier between the structure and the corrosive influence of soil, corrosion still occurs and can be problematic. Foundations can collect water and debris, creating conditions that promote hidden corrosion activity impacting both steel and concrete. Additionally, substation structures are subject to normal wear and tear and occasional accidental damage which can also cause structural degradation.

Using a proven, systematic capital approach with advanced inspection technologies, Osmose is able to identify steel corrosion, concrete degradation, and damage that might otherwise go unnoticed. Osmose provides turnkey solutions for corrosion mitigation and structure restoration.
