9/13/2015

 USA, Pennsylvania: The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) will invest more than $570 million in infrastructure and vehicle rehabilitation projects in Fiscal Year 2015 to restore essential infrastructure that supports safe and efficient service to its more than 1.1 million daily riders.

The substation programme of the upgrade projects includes replacement of major power components of SEPTA’s regional rail and transit traction power substations such as transformers, transformer breakers, trolley breakers, feeder switches, substation switchgear and protective relaying.

The programme, which includes the purchase of 16 railroad transformers, will focus on many substations originally built more than 80 years ago.
