UF Substation #2 Cable & Switchgear Replacement

  • Project Owner: University of Florida
  • Location: Gainesville, FL
  • Completion Date: August 2019
  • Partners: Moses & Associates and RMF Engineering

Powerful Campus Upgrades

Substation #2 Cable and Switchgear Replacement is a project for the University of Florida with the main objective to update the electrical utilities to several key buildings around campus. The existing cable and switches that have been in basements, underground vaults, and duct systems for 50 or more years will be removed and replaced without interrupting power to the buildings they serve. In many of these areas a new cabling duct is not an option. Therefore the existing electrical cables must be removed to make way for the new ones.

This project will improve the reliability of UF’s power distribution by replacing aging equipment and cable. Some of the buildings receiving upgrades include Larsen Hall, Black Hall, Carr Hall, Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, Psychology, Stetson Medical, and Pharmacy. This project is also designed to increase safety for the individuals that maintain the electrical equipment on campus. The new equipment being installed features the newest standard of arc-flash suppression and electronic fault current interruption, allowing the equipment to be operated in confined spaces with reduced risk.

Substation #2 Cable and Switchgear Replacement is different from other projects because the intent is not to visually improve a building or an area. The intent is to improve the functionality and safety of the electrical system serving multiple buildings. The work performed under this contract will be in place serving these buildings for generations.
