Equipment, Site, Structure, and Security

Substations and switchyards share critical assets to overall system reliability, however:

  • Substation structures typically haven’t been addressed in decades
  • Many substation structural components are beyond their expected design life and showing signs of deterioration
  • Planning outages for equipment and structure replacement can take months and can be costly
  • Capital budgets are becoming subject to increased scrutiny
  • Structure failures represent a substantial risk of loss of life, widespread outages, and financial losses
