TRC wins storm hardening contract from Public Service of New Hampshire

TRC Companies, Inc. won a $1.5 million contract by Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH) to support the hardening of transmission lines and structures throughout the state as a preventative measure against outages caused by weather events.

TRC will analyze 101 power lines (115 kV, 230 kV, and 345 kV) totaling 1,019 miles and about 11,500 structures within PSNH’s transmission system.

Based on that analysis, TRC will recommend design improvements for overloaded structures and prioritize them for replacement. The project is anticipated to be complete in 2015.
