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.

Project Highlights

  • 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.
