When an unexpected bushing failure occurred, this plant relied on EBI for demo, custom fabrication of replacement doghouses and IPB sections, cryogenic cleaning, and the supply of spare parts necessary to accommodate the transformer change-out activities to get the Unit back up and running.

Scope of Work:

  • Removed sections of bus from blast wall to the GSU
  • Cryogenically cleaned bus from GCB to UAT
  • Modified bus and installed bolted covers at the UAT
  • HI-POT testing AF and AL from the GCB toward the GSU
  • Assisted in alignment of new transformer
  • Removed braids from GCB on GSU side, cleaned and reinstalled
  • Fabricated three new dog houses and IPB sections
  • Installed new support steel
  • Installed new dog houses and IPB sections
  • Silver soldering of draw leads on high side
  • Supplied braids and hardware to connect IPB to GSU
