Cupertino Electric utility transmission line project in Palo Alto, California
Location: 
Palo Alto, CA
Project Size: 
230 kV
Project Attributes: 
Engineered
Project Summary: 

The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) Transmission Line Tower project involved the design and replacement of two 230 kV circuit switchers with two new disconnect switches with SF6 load interrupters mounted on a SLAC tower. Cupertino Electric's scope of work included the project engineering, demolition, equipment purchase, installation, testing and commissioning services. Cupertino Electric also provided temporary power to the jobsite and closely coordinated with the utility Pacific Gas & Electric on all work related to this project, including local power outages.

The densely wooded location of the project in Northern California meant that the project management team had to take extra precautions to maximize safety and security while performing this project with skilled IBEW linemen.
