Irish Creek Substation Line Addition

The Irish Creek Line Addition project was a brownfield project I was a design engineer on. The intent of this project was to add a new 345 kV line position to an already existing wind collector substation. The scope of work included adding a motor operated disconnect and power circuit breaker. My role in this project was related to the electrical and physical design of the additions.
