Electrical Transmission and Substations

InfraTerra provides specialized capabilities in reliability assessment of geographically distributed lifeline systems. Aboveground and underground high voltage transmission lines traverse areas of diverse geo-hazards. Localized damage to components of these systems can cascade through the grid with major consequences that can impact all aspects of a modern functioning society. InfraTerra staff provide a complete range of geologic and engineering services ranging from:

  • Geologic characterization of transmission line corridors
  • Mapping of earthquake and non-earthquake geo-hazards
  • Site-specific subsurface investigations
  • Soil-structure interaction analysis of buried ductbanks
  • Structural analysis of above ground transmission towers and substations
