Electric power and storm restoration:
The devastation and financial losses caused by severe weather will be a hot topic of discussion far into the future. But there is a bigger question to address: How do utilities prepare for a future where massive storms may occur with greater frequency and greater intensity? The answer lies in specific technological solutions that strengthen the electric grid to withstand the stresses that come with severe weather events.
Severe weather events wreak havoc on substations: Salt Water flooding causes instant corrosion to switchgear, leaving customers powerless. ABB’s Service solutions can assist utilities with assessing damage to substations post-storm, and also prepare the system for future storms.
