CVE’s Transmission Line & Substation teams constructed the new Mercer 345kV substation in Eagle Mountain, Utah. The substation consists of a new 345kV six-bay breaker and a half-ring bus with six feeds to a customer and four lines back to the grid. Associated switches, bus work, CCVT’s, CT/VT’s, lightning arresters, control house, and emergency generator were installed.
CVE installed a new loop in and out of two 345kV lines to the new Mercer substation. The loop consists of 8 structures – 3 tangent and 5 angles, all steel monopole structures with concrete pier foundations. The loop in is approximately 1 mile in total length. All structures are double circuit and have bundled conductor.
Project was on a very aggressive schedule to meet the needs of the high-profile customers. CVE line division was able to complete the project on time and under budget.
