Gaylor Electric upgraded the interconnect station installing nine additional 345kV breakers into the existing AEP switch-yard facility. Large drilling rigs, cranes and concrete pumps were used to build the foundation inside the live substation.
By partnering with a major supplier, Gaylor Electric developed an internet based inventory tracking spreadsheet shared by all parties calling for materials to be delivered when needed.
Peak manpower consisting of 25 Gaylor Electric electricians as well as 25 additional professionals working 10-hour days, 6-days a week allowed for successful completion of this energy project with no disruption to commercial operations.
