“This ceremony highlights a $3M dollar investment to improve efficiency, power quality and reliability to GPA customers in the central and northern villages,” stated Joaquin C. Flores, P.E., GPA General Manager, “These upgrades are critical as the Hagåtña Substation serves as a bulk substation in the transmission of power from our base load plants in Piti to the central and northern parts of Guam – thereby stabilizing power service in these areas.”
The upgrades include replacement of old equipment to modern and automated hardware. This includes breakers, potential transformers, disconnect switches, control & relay panels, backup battery systems, perimeter lighting, AC/DC panels, cable trays, and control circuits.
“The completion of this project represents the first of many CIP investments over the next five years,” remarked Flores, “Customers can expect a higher level of service with the completion of this project as GPA is better able to plan and execute maintenance work and maintain power quality – more projects like the Hagåtña Substation Upgrade Project are underway.”
