Substation Structure Assessment

Substation structures support some of the most important, expensive, and difficult-to-replace equipment on the grid.  Though many substation structures are built on concrete foundations, which isolate them from the corrosive influence of soil, they often collect water and debris internally, creating conditions that support corrosion activity.

Regular assessment of substation structures can help identify structural deficiencies early allowing for planned restoration.  Effective restoration can return structures back to original or better strength capacity while the structure is still in service (in many cases).
