Sunrise Powerlink: Innovative solutions for today’s energy needs
DCI Engineers is continuing its long-working history with Crux Subsurface on a variety of innovative solutions for transmission tower foundation caps. This project, with San Diego Gas & Electric, involved replacing traditional wooden piles with steel poles. With the use of creative technology, DCI Engineers created unique 3D models of transmission pile caps to assist with this project.
- Innovative use of Inventor software created 3D drawings that helped streamline production components, correct field errors, and save time on costly redesign.
- Work performed on rugged terrain such as mountain sides and cliffs required a great amount of logistical coordination.
- Provided 3D drawings that were so detailed that they were often used as shop drawings for the steel fabricator.
- Able to redesign plates as solid pieces without welding, which in turn saved in welding costs.
