Gas-Filled Cable Replacement Increases Reliability and Lowers Costs

LaBella Associates partnered with a local utility provider to design the replacement of two aged, nitrogen gas-filled cable circuits to improve reliability and reduce maintenance costs associated with the existing cable. Our scope of work included conceptual and detailed design as well as permitting and construction support.

The existing conductor was installed both overhead and underground. The new design mimicked this arrangement, changing the underground conductor to new EPR and the overhead conductor to open wire. Once the new conductor was installed, the project scope included the removal of the existing conductor and facilities.
