USA, Washington: Seattle City Light is completing exterior features of its new downtown substation built in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighbourhood, and designed as a community-friendly facility compatible with its surroundings.

The Denny substation, the first Seattle substation to be built in 30 years, is a 4,088 sqm open-space facility equipped with four 115 kV power transformers and designed to be able to accept two additional 230 kV transformers in the future, reports T&D World.

The substation was energized in May and is expected to be fully completed in late 2018.
