The value that Powell brings to your project includes a professional Project Management team trained in the needs and requirements to properly plan and execute all the necessary tasks from initial contact to energization or any part thereof. Our skills are so highly valued that we have provided them as a resource to customers to assist with the management of projects with scope outside of that which Powell provides.Modern electrical distribution systems are complex in design and often include interconnected with other equipment such as batteries, communications, SCADA, other switchgear assemblies and thermal monitoring. As a result, the physical delivery of the project to the jobsite is not the last stage in the process. Not only must the equipment be installed but the various systems must be verified as to correct operation. This is both a productivity and a safety issue. There is no entity better suited to handle these tasks than Powell. We designed it, we manufactured it and we know the details of what is necessary. Our field teams are ready to provide the level of service you require in order to move your project to that "ready to go" stage.Smaller-sized projects where a large Engineering Constructor is not involved often require the end-user to source a variety of activities during the planning and pre-engineering stages. Among these are a wide variety of power studies including interrupting current calculations, fault studies and arc flash zone determination. Powell has the resources to aide our customer with these services. Our depth of understanding of equipment ratings and proper application will often result in a study that gives you the best determination of equipment selection and delivers maximum value.Equipment training provides a practical approach with brief classroom discussions followed by “hands on” practice. Each course is intended to stimulate further discussion for continued learning. Instructors are application technologists, manufacturing specialists, and engineers, who provide a blend of diversified perspectives.

Powell is here to fill the gaps and make your project go smoothly. Contact us today to see how we can help.

Project Management
Powell customers look to Powell to provide end-to-end solutions whether the project is simple and straight-forward or if it is many years in execution and involving a broad range of equipment. The value that Powell brings to your project includes a professional Project Management team trained in the needs and requirements to properly plan and execute all the necessary tasks from initial contact to energization or any part thereof. Our skills are so highly valued that we have provided them as a resource to customers to assist with the management of projects with scope outside of that which Powell provides.
Equipment Installation and Commissioning
Modern electrical distribution systems are complex in design and often include interconnected with other equipment such as batteries, communications, SCADA, other switchgear assemblies and thermal monitoring. As a result, the physical delivery of the project to the jobsite is not the last stage in the process. Not only must the equipment be installed but the various systems must be verified as to correct operation. This is both a productivity and a safety issue. There is no entity better suited to handle these tasks than Powell. We designed it, we manufactured it and we know the details of what is necessary. Our field teams are ready to provide the level of service you require in order to move your project to that "ready to go" stage.

From the beginning our design and construction excellence defined the standard for others to follow. Soon, the PCR was widely imitated throughout the industry. Now, more than a quarter of a century later, our Power Control Rooms still set the benchmark for reliability and performance. Our 50 years of experience and integration know-how makes Powell the supplier of choice if you want a smooth transition from concept to energized system. Our ability to tailor the solution to fit your needs is unsurpassed in the market today. If you have never used a Power Control Room from Powell, you are missing an opportunity.Powell has been in the business of integrated electrical enclosure solutions for more than five decades. The solutions offered for the Canadian market required a few modifications in order to optimize the design for the environmental conditions. The Powell PCR-R is a rigid frame construction with peaked roof. The true value of this enclosure is our expertise of packaging all of your distribution substation equipment into an integrated and fully functional package delivered complete and ready to install and commission. Advanced preparation allows for a quick turn from delivery to energization.Powell is in the business of serving the offshore industry by providing maximum value to our customers through complete turn-key project coordination. We expect this to be part of our responsibility as a single source supplier with the capability of engineering design and interface, manufacturing, testing, shipping, and commissioning. The diversified nature of our expertise is the key ingredient of our ability to deliver the value expected by our customers. Provide your technical parameters and environmental requirements and Powell will manage the project from initial design to field commissioning.Powell brings with it over 50 years of experience and offers many features that make us the preeminent supplier of power systems and equipment for the transit industry. Powell has successfully provided the power supplies for several major transportation authorities in the United States. This list includes New York City, Dallas, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, Sacramento, Boston, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and worldwide locations in Shanghai, Peoples Republic of China.At Powell, we are in the problem solving business. We are at our best when customers approach us with unique problems. We were the first to introduce the PCR concept with an integrated package assembled and tested and then delivered to the jobsite. The problem of mobility has presented itself in various forms and from various customers. In some cases access was the issue, while in others it was a case of the need for a temporary and moveable solution. Powell can work with you on the specific needs of your project, to provide our Power Control Room concept constructed on a trailer platform to provide both ease of movement and compliance for over-the-road transport. Contact us to discuss your needs.While Powell originated the PCR concept almost 50 years ago, some solutions require a simpler weather-proof answer. Any of our products can be incorporated into a shelterform type construction with either a walk-in or non walk-in feature. These are classically used for remote non-manned installations or projects where protection from the elements is needed but environmental control is not critical.

Powell’s padmounted switches may be provided in up to 6 switched ways. Padmount mounted switches typically are provided with either front or rear termination access. Powell will configure to meet the customers’ requirements. Switches can be operated either manually or through distribution automation to meet your requirements. No matter the application load switching, line sectionalizing, fault interruption, source transfer, or distribution automation, Powell can provide a quality solution for your application.Powell subsurface/vault style medium voltage switches are available for systems rated 15kV through 38kV, 900A continuous current. Subsurface vault switches utilize a medium voltage switch assembly mounted below ground level in a vault or chamber. These are typically used for underground distribution systems and a straight-forward and simple method of system distribution. A wide variety of switch configurations are possible so as to provide a truly custom-engineered solution for your application.Powell has been providing solutions to automation and voltage loss restoration for more than 30 years. Whether the requirement is for a standalone automatic transfer switch, an automatic transfer switch with load fault protection, or a multiple source system reconfiguration with high speed transfer, Powell’s experience in providing preferred/alternate, main-tie-main, and multisource load shedding allows us to provide a solution that meets or exceeds our customer's requirements.Powell’s fault interrupters are magnetically actuated to provide a fault interrupter that does not need an added mechanism to provide automated operation. Since the base interrupter has no manual operating handle, potential SF6 leak points are eliminated. If a manual trip is required, then a manual trip handle can be provided. Fault interrupter ratings 15kV through 38kV, 600A, Fault interrupt/Fault Close 12kA, or 25kA.
