Electricity Industry Transformer Transportation Workshop
Wednesday, February 24, 2016 - Wednesday, February 24, 2016
Hyatt Regency La Jolla
3777 La Jolla Village Dr San Diego, CA 92122 UNITED STATES
  • The emergency movement of Large Transmission Power Transformers (LTPTs) is a well-recognized challenge for electric utilities. To address this, the electric utility industry has come together to enhance emergency transportation plans and processes in order to support the movement of multiple transformers in a crisis. 

     

    Join us for a 1-day workshop that brings investor-owned, municipal, and cooperative utilities together with transportation partners to learn about the progress made on emergency transformer movement by the Edison Electric Institute, American Public Power Association, National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, the Transformer Transportation Working Group, and the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council.

     

    Open to any utility and transportation industry professional who may be responsible for transmission system planning, substation or transformer design and management, logistics, or emergency management. The workshop provides a unique opportunity to share ideas, experiences, and plans for emergency equipment movement.

  • ·       Washington Update – learn about the political environment facing utilities including how perceptions of various threats to substations and large transformers are driving policy

    ·       Update on industry’s Transformer Transportation Initiative – a review of the effort, tools, and plans developed over the past year by the electric industry

    ·       The Transportation Process – a deep dive into the steps utilities must take to effectively work with transportation partners to efficiently move transformer and other large equipment

    ·       Utility Transportation Case Studies – review a range of utility developed logistics plans for moving large transformers and case studies on how utilities have moved transformers

    ·       Next Steps in the Transportation Initiative – help guide the industry’s future efforts on the transportation of transformers and other critical equipment
