Location:  North Dakota

Description:  This project included construction of the new 230/115kV Williston 2 Substation. The project scope included site work, foundations, fencing, grounding, steel structures, electrical equipment, some transmission construction work, and a site-built service building. As with the Rugby Wind Project constructed in North Dakota, the Williston 2 Substation project was completed in a remote location, which offered logistical challenges as well as extreme weather conditions. The project lasted nearly a year, with construction crews working through harsh winter conditions, with temperatures approaching -25 Degrees Fahrenheit on average during January and February.

Client:  Western Area Power Administration

Completion Date:  2010
