Applications Power/Utility Wind Energy

To keep up with skyrocketing demand for clean power, wind power companies are struggling to line up all the permits and personnel, turbines and transmission infrastructure to meet deadlines. With all they have on their plates, one thing they shouldn’t have to worry about is designing and building high-quality equipment shelters integrating all the equipment, wiring and instrumentation needed to support wind farm operations.

Trachte has been trusted by electric utilities to supply substation building solutions since the 1940s and has an expanded range of preassembled building solutions for wind power customers including:

  • Wind farm developers
  • EPC firms
  • Electrical and construction contractors
  • Interconnect utilities
  • Relay and protection panel manufacturers
  • OEMs
  • Substation packagers

Engineered Solutions
While Trachte is renowned for the quality of its structures built to withstand harsh environments, including high wind loads, the real value comes from what comes inside: complete integrated equipment packages custom designed and engineered to meet your needs. For the wind industry, Trachte’s Engineered Applications Group provides collector substations with switchgear and protection, tie stations with protection and synchonization, as well as other available equipment shelters. These shelters are engineered, designed, assembled and tested at our ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturing facilities and shipped to the site with everything required for immediate use, including:

  • Cabling
  • Basic power requirements
  • HVAC
  • SCADA/RTU communications and monitoring equipment
  • Transformers
  • Protective relay equipment
  • Switchgear
  • Battery systems
  • Restricted access equipment and monitoring and recording devices to meet NERC’s Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) guidelines

Since the work was completed in the factory, minimal space is needed at the final site for assembly, fewer personnel are required, and there are no weather or logistics delays to throw off the schedule.

With Trachte, you get more than a just a quality shelter, you get access to a century of engineering and manufacturing expertise that helps you meet the compressed production schedules common in the Wind Energy market.
