Seismic vulnerability assessment of power generation and T&D facilities for a power company

Objective:

To determine the extent of seismic damage as a result of a strong earthquake shaking, as well as identification of potential seismic vulnerabilities of the power company’s complete power generation, transmission and distribution infra-structure.

Solution:

For this project ENOVA was part of an expert project panel to perform an area wide post-earthquake inspection of the entire power generation, transmission and distribution system of a mid-size power company following a major earthquake. The focus of the post-earthquake investigation was to identify possible weakness in existing structures and equipment, as well as identification of potential seismic vulnerabilities in the power generation and delivery infra-structure.
