Turnkey Substation Design Build for Cannabis Cultivation Facility
About the Project
Paragon Engineering Services Inc. contracted ERTH Infrastructure Services to assist with a turnkey substation design-build project for WeedMD, a cannabis cultivation company with facilities located in Strathroy and Aylmer, Ontario.
The project involved an 8MW new service from grid connection at 27600V to site service voltage main distribution switchboards inclusive at 600/347V. The project also included the commissioning of all equipment installed: poles, overhead lines, switches, duct bank (approximately 1200ft), HV outdoor switchgear, padmount transformers (4000kVA, 2x 2000kVA), and distribution switchgear.
“The ERTH Infrastructure team is extremely knowledgeable, structured and always maintains safety as a top priority. They bring forward-thinking ideas to the table, while providing the most economical solutions possible with the information available at the time of design. They take pride in each and every installation project, small or large, and the end product truly shows. It has been a pleasure working with this supportive and professional team to complete our installation project on time and on budget.”
