Transmission and Distribution

Transmission and distribution systems are the backbone of any utility system. The myriad of obstacles, difficult terrain, and environmental aspects of these projects are all in a day’s work for our skilled engineering teams. From initial routing and right-of-way to design and staking to construction and energization ESC engineering has you covered.

For distribution, our staff uses the latest tools in developing design and construction standards as well as field staking where automating staking and integration with GIS and mapping systems are becoming more common. In addition to design and staking we coordinate with and oversee utility crews and contractors to ensure that applicable standards, such as RUS guidelines are satisfied.

In transmission, increasing capacity and improving reliability are some of the prime drivers for new or upgraded lines. ESC has an experienced staff with diverse backgrounds and familiarity with applications up to 345kV. The Rocky Mountain region is our home and provides some of the most challenging terrain, which provides ample opportunities to develop unique solutions to face unsolved problems. Using state-of-the-art software such as PLS-CADD, our engineers can provide complete designs including 3D analysis of the line and each structure. Complete design packages include appropriate drawings, calculation booklets and specifications.

For your transmission line and distribution needs, we have the resources and the expertise to deliver the timely and relevant solutions you need.
