Black & Veatch Subsidiary Constructs Two Substations

The Georgia Transmission Corp. has two new substations. The Sewell Creek Substation, near Cedartown, Georgia, is a 230-kV interconnection substation with a six-position ring bus design, connecting four combustion turbines at a new peaking plant. The Doyle Substation connects five combustion turbines at a new Monroe, Georgia, peaking plant. It consists of two adjacent yards, one with a four-position, 230-kV ring bus and one with a five-position, 115-kV ring bus.

The Georgia Transmission Corp., Tucker, Georgia, contracted with Overland Contracting Inc., a wholly owned construction subsidiary of Black & Veatch, to engineer, procure and construct the substations.

The companies finished both substations in time to meet Georgia's peak power season, which begins around June 1. In conjunction with OCI-Atlanta, the Black &Veatch Orlando, Florida, office engineered the projects.
