69/12kV Pole Change Outs

Location: 
Chinle, Arizona
Client: 
Navajo Tribal Utility Authority
Year Completed: 
2012

In order to comply with Smart Grid requirements, the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority was required to replace existing static wire throughout the system with a new fiber optic conductor. The increased conductor size demanded the structures within the system be replaced.

Atkinson Power performed a combination of 69kV and 12kV structure changeouts across the Navajo Nation in northeastern Arizona. In total, 883 structures were replaced—often while lines were energized. The project team also overcame challenging terrain and weather conditions to achieve the aggressive schedule.
