Transmission

We handle the maintenance and service of this bulk movement of electric power.

Distribution-Overhead

Overhead transmission lines are typically three-phase HVAC transmission (high-voltage alternating current). Over very long distances HVDC (high-voltage direct-current) is used for greater efficiency over very long distances, typically hundreds of miles.

Distribution-Underground

Underground transmission lines are generally not affected by weather. Safety clearance is generally less of a factor than in an overhead distribution environment. Additionally long underground cables have significantly greater capacitance giving these lines the ability to store a greater electric charge.

Substations

Substations are a sophisticated control system which balance the generation with the rate of energy consumption. In a centralized power generation environment the local control of generation is necessary. Therefore it is critical that synchronization is achieved between the generation units in order to prevent overload conditions.

Directional Drilling

Directional drilling is non-vertical drilling. Directional drilling provides access into the area where vertical access is difficult or otherwise not possible. This includes gaining access underneath a difficult-to-drill formation.

Storm Repair

Storm repair demands mobility, capacity, and immediate response. These volatile conditions require a pre-planned strategy for success. GRIDTECH has a systematic approach utilizing standard safety procedures and this preparedness shows in the service levels we are able to provide.

Commercial | Industrial | Residential
