As an essential part of electrical power transmission, KBR has far-reaching experience in the installation, building and upgrading of Gas and Air Insulation Substations.
We are known for utilizing a unique approach to executing Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and design projects in the energy sector that include the pre-planning and management of substations to accommodate our customers' operational standards.
We also have a proven track record of upgrading and expanding existing substations while delivering these solutions on time and on budget. The planning, project management and implementation of large transmission lines has been our specialty for decades, which is why we provide a distinct advantage in assessing the substation needs of our customers.
Our capabilities include constructing high-voltage transmission substations, generator step-up stations and complex cogeneration distribution substations. As an industry leader, we were chosen to perform construction services for a natural gas-fueled power plant in North Carolina that included siting and building of the entire electric transmission infrastructure. We also conduct unique industrial studies to discover the most efficient routes of creating conceptual schematics for all transmission solutions.
Our large network of project managers and highly skilled engineers allows us to work with the most intricate protection systems while utilizing an array of communications mediums such as power lines, microwave channels and fiber optic avenues to inventively complete upgrades and retrofits, grounding system analysis and design, and material procurement.
