Cerro Gordo Transformer

Cerro Gordo Transformer

Project: Cerro Gordo Substation
Client: PNM
Location: Santa Fe, NM

The Cerro Gordo substation in Santa Fe was situated at the confluence of four active drainages at the bottom of a sizeable watershed. Storm flow had deposited enough sediment to cause overtopping at the back wall of the substation, displacing the gravel insulation beneath the transformers and creating a pond inside the substation. We performed a detailed site analysis, and produced a remediation plan in which the least amount of earthwork would result in maximum benefit. Unfortunately the site burned down before work could commence on this project.
