Re-commissioning of all substations and the PSP switchyard

What is it?

We isolate each substation so that they are all de-energized, and then test each piece of equipment to check the integrity and to ensure they operate as designed. We will check all of the protective systems in the substations that ‘watch-over’ everything to ensure they are operating properly.

Why are we doing it?

We are undertaking this significant re-commissioning to ensure that all protective equipment in the substations works as it should. It will also confirm that the equipment and all of its wiring is connected and functioning as described in the updated drawings.

How does it benefit you?

This project will help improve system and service reliability for our customers. We expect it will result in decreased outages attributed to our T&D infrastructure.
