Power Outage From Utility Pole Struck by Vehicle
Case Study Details
Type of Job
300 kW Generator, 12,400V Transformer
A car struck a utility pole which caused the pole to break and power to be cut.
Prime Power Rentals provided a 300W diesel generator, medium voltage cable, transformer, and technicians to power the businesses and residences that were affected by the accident. The generator provided power to the customers while the electric utility safely made repairs and reset poles.
Normally, this would have caused a lengthy disruption of power, but with the support from Prime Power Rentals, customers continued to operate their businesses and residents remained with uninterrupted power.
Prime Power deployed all the equipment onsite within 90 minutes of the initial call and restored the power within 2.5 hours after receiving the emergency call.
