Substation & Distribution Upgrade

Substation & Distribution Upgrade

Location: Clemson, S.C.

Client: Clemson University

Clemson University's medium-voltage electrical distribution system on campus requires a significant upgrade to continue safe and reliable operation. Substation and distribution switchgear equipment are reaching the end of their useful life, and the university plans to migrate away from the 5-kV system in favor of a more reliable and efficient 15-kV system. Burns & McDonnell is assisting the university in developing a detailed upgrade and replacement plan and preparing the associated design and construction documents to modernize the electrical distribution system.
