Boulder City to power up with a new large power transformer

USA. Nevada: Boulder City in Nevada is embarking on a large power project as part of its capital improvement plan, replacing the backup electricity supply.

$1.4 million is budgeted for this critical project for the community, which will include purchase and installation of a large power transformer, reports Boulder City Review.

“The large transformer […] will take over a year to build and deliver,” Acting City Manager Scott Hansen said. “There are also other long lead time items such as breakers and a transformer for station power. This project will also require a contract to install a large concrete pad for the equipment to sit on, grounding, connections to the high voltage lines, and installation work,” he added.

The timeline of the project is more than a year, with transformers ordered in August, but delivery and installation not scheduled to begin until 2018.
