Weber Ave. sub replacement - 'Falls'

Weber Ave. sub replacement - 'Falls'
It looks to be coming along nicely now. The more accessible sides of the sub have this wooden fence for appearance apparently; the other two sides have narrow chain-link fencing.

It was eventually determined this sub was to have 10 13.8kV circuits with provision for 2 more.

Is Xcel doing that work themselves or a subcontractor? Seems like a lot of subcontractors working in my area.

Probably a bit of both. Haven't been able to be around when people are on site and it's not a bystander-friendly spot either.

I'm curious to see how this is going to play out with that Morrell plant sub. I'm reminded of a similar situation here in St. Cloud. A large foundry has a dedicated 115/13.8 kV sub (wooden framed NSP style) which appears to put out two circuits. Those two circuits feed risers that feed some outdoor switchgear at the foundry building and some 13.8 to 4 kV unit transformers. I wonder if they will do something similar here, maybe even fed with 34.5 kV.

Coming back to this, we eventually found out Morrell is getting its own 13.8kV/4160V step-down... I'd think that one of those old 13.8kV/4160V step-downs from the 'cities would have had enough oomph to do the job that the three they set out instead.

That sub is huge for 115kV!

It is. I wouldn't be surprised if it was built with room for a third 115kV bay later.
