Electric transmission and distribution
We helped preserve wetlands and client reputation while installing cables with horizontal drilling tech
- Central Electric Power Cooperative (CEP) needed to add redundancy to its infrastructure near the South Carolina coast to guard against power outages.
- To accomplish this, CEP had to install power cables underneath protected wetlands and historic trees. If the project disturbed the trees, CEP would incur hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines.
- We brought experience managing horizontal directional drilling in similarly difficult conditions. After carefully assessing the site, we found a cost-effective, risk-reducing solution to drilling and installing wires in its loose sands.
- We also protected CEP’s reputation with the public and regulators through proactive communication and management of stakeholder expectations.
