Mobile Substation Manufacturers And Suppliers In The USAAs a top mobile substation manufacturer and supplier in the USA, Swartz engineering is available to custom build a safe and reliable mobile substation for your business. Every business needs a reliable power supply to maintain its operations and to reduce downtime. Power demand needs to be met appropriately without any form of disruption. Using portable substations can ensure that you can quite easily maintain your power supply without having to face any form of operational restriction. 

Reliable Prefabricated Portable Power Substations

Portable substations can ensure a highly safe and reliable connection to the grid. These systems can be properly outfitted to a trailer and kept as mobile devices that can be rolled out when you need them the most. Portable power substations deliver safe and reliable power and with all of the components included in the substation, you can have a plug and play solution for mobile power on any job site or whenever there is a power outage.

High and medium voltage substations are built to be a fully mobile solution. They can be housed on semi trailers or brought out on skids. The shelter or e house design will include modules with all of the components required for power generation. Every mobile substation is built with a power transformer, AIS and GIS switchgear, MV cables, AC and DC aux power supplies as well as protection and control systems. 

Portable Power Substations: Providing a Crucial Flexible Link in the Electrical Grid

Substations are crucial in the distribution and transmission of electricity throughout the grid. What happens when a substation is 'offline'? There are many factors that can cause disruption, which may not be under the control of utilities or grid operators. These include equipment breakdown, natural disasters like floods and lightning strikes, as well operational requirements like maintenance and refurbishment.

Swartz Engineering's mobile stations can help bridge this gap and keep the grid safe and operational. A mobile substation can be described as a trailer or container that is self-contained and equipped with all the high- and medium-voltage components required for a full substation. It includes a power transformer and switchgear, disconnect switches, metering transformers and surge arresters. Customers may also require additional equipment.

Prefabricated For Customer’s Needs

Choosing a mobile substation will ensure that you can have reliable power that needs very little space and a solution that is also able to plug and play when compared to other forms of generation. There is little on site work required for an installation and the portable substation can also be expanded to include the needs for larger on site generation. These systems are highly resistant in harsh environments and they can be an environmentally friendly choice when compared to traditional generators and more. 

These portable power solutions include full relay control panels, and power generation up to 230 kva and 50mva. The substation interconnection and automation ensures a reliable power source and a purpose driven solution made to fit industries like oil and gas, electrical grid work, mining, power generation and more. If you need reliable power generation and consistent support for your business, these are crucial items to seek in supply. 

Portable substations can be designed to exceed your needs and with power generation options from a trailer or skid mounted design. You can have support to suit any industry or business as well as for powering crucial equipment for that industry.

Benefits of Portable Electrical Substations

Portable electrical substations, also known as mobile substations, offer several benefits to industries that require temporary or emergency power supply. Here are some of the main benefits of using a portable electrical substation:

  1. Quick Deployment: Portable electrical substations can be deployed quickly to provide power supply in emergency situations or when the grid is unavailable. This means that industries can minimize downtime and prevent significant losses due to power outages or other disruptions.
  2. Cost-Effective: Portable electrical substations are a cost-effective solution for industries that require temporary power supply. They eliminate the need for permanent infrastructure and can be rented or purchased at a fraction of the cost of building a permanent substation.
  3. Versatile: Portable electrical substations can be used in a variety of industries, including mining, oil and gas, construction, event management, and military. They are customizable to meet specific industry requirements, making them a versatile solution for temporary or emergency power supply needs.
  4. Increased Efficiency: Portable electrical substations are designed to be efficient, with state-of-the-art transformers, switchgear, and other components that ensure maximum reliability and durability. They can also be integrated with smart technology, which allows for real-time monitoring and control of power supply.
  5. Improved Safety: Portable electrical substations are designed with safety in mind, with robust insulation systems, protection devices, and other safety features that ensure the safe operation of the substation.
