Some of the major electrical related items for this project included the extension of an existing 12.5kV circuit approximately 2,000 feet to an newly constructed pad where terminated to a new 750KVA pad mounted transformer. From this termination point Stronghold brought the secondary source in to a 1200 a main distribution board at 480/ 277V. Power was then distributed throughout the facility using industrial wiring techniques in accordance with the National Electrical Code for Class I Div 2 Hazardous type location.
