Proven Safe Design Library

Posted on Thursday, April 24, 2014



The driving principle behind ModPower’s Modular Substations is the elimination of uncertainty.

Addressed through standardized design, and workshop assembly and testing, the modular approach draws from a proven safe design library. The designer compiles appropriate transformers, breakers, and structural information to produce a complete design in hours. The designer may need to do minor modifications to ensure the elements identified suit the project.

ModPower’s proven safe design library produces an appropriate, flexible, tested Modular Substation configuration which offers the earliest return on investment.


Smart Technology & Hard Fiber

Posted on Tuesday, April 15, 2014

A ModPower Modular Substation leaves the factory fully assembled, wired and tested. This technology offers significant savings, including the minimization of on-site work and any delays, which arise due to inclement weather. The time required to integrate site services is also be greatly reduced.

ModPower is brand agnostic and implements all major equipment brands into the design, build and installation of their modular substations. We can also incorporate the latest technology in protection, metering, SCADA control and audio frequency load control into our modular design.

ModPower’s smart technology and hard fiber provides:

  • Rapid substation energization, protection, control and communication commission
  • Continuous real time camera (standard and infra-red), power flow data, which is encoded and spooled for secure, web-based remote monitor and control capability
  • Threat identification and examination of equipment condition trends to enable rapid control and load shed decisions

Helical Pile Foundations

Posted on Thursday, March 06, 2014

Helical Pile Foundations offer rapid installation as well as being proven, high quality, low cost, durable and reusable.

ModPower's Modular Substations are easily re-located and re-assembled. Part of this flexibility stems from the manner in which our Modular Substations are anchored.

ModPower’s helical pile foundations system offers many benefits including:

  • Faster anchoring techniques, which are available for immediate use with no concrete cure time
  • Relative ease of installation in most weather and site conditions
  • Ideal for congested areas and reduced headroom applications
  • No need for soil removal or disposal, meaning less environmental impact

Our Design Library

Posted on Thursday, February 06, 2014

A ModPower modular substation is designed using an extensive proven safe design library of components. ModPower’s design library contains over 2,000 pieces of equipment, substructures, cable ducts, wires, tubes, clamps, roads and fences. Our approach ensures each Modular Substation we design, and install is proven, predictable and repeatable.

Designed to be truly fit-for-purpose, ModPower provides functions for all common scenarios and industry specific considerations. It is also applicable to large substations with different voltage-levels. ModPower is brand agnostic and accommodates electrical systems from across the industry.
