Substation & Switch Yard Structures

Overview

The substation is a high-voltage electric system facility. The purpose of a substation is to step down high voltage electricity from the transmission system to lower voltage electricity so it can be easily supplied to homes and businesses in the area through lower-voltage distribution lines. It also is used to change AC voltages from one level to another, and/or change alternating current to direct current or direct current to alternating current.

We manufacture substation & switchyard structures which include Gantries & Equipment support structures as per customers’ requirements.

Gantry structures are mainly used to guide the power conductors from the last tower near the substation to the electrical equipment and for line crossing. This structure consists of a number of columns and beams, which depend on the number of circuits of the line. Equipment Support Structures are columns, supporting electric equipment in a substation. Depending upon the site and client’s requirement, the Gantry and Equipment support structures can be mounted on substation building also.
