Substation Project Description
DIS-TRAN turns mountains into molehills with skid-mounted substations. The utility requested an innovative solution to an age-old problem: time. Specifically, how could we offset their lengthy permitting process?
Difficult but doable: DIS-TRAN delivered designs and materials to our partner contractor to pre-assemble substation structures and mount them onto skids while the end-user utility awaited permits. By the time permitting was done and the actual job-site opened, the equipment was already assembled and mounted for transport. Instead of facing a mountain of work awaiting them, the contractor and utility were able to start installing everything right then and there.
This approach saved more than just enormous time in the yard: the skids also reduced the number of foundations needed.
Once everyone really saw the benefits, it left a lasting impression: skid-mounted and factory-built is the way to go when you need it fast.
