Metadigm Services Substation Energized In Tennessee

Renew Grid, Tuesday June 26, 2012 - 12:39:01

Metadigm Services, a company that specializes in advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) services, has completed a new substation for the Athens Utilities Board (AUB).

Metadigm designed the foundations, structures, wiring, relaying and SCADA system for the utility.

The 161 kV to 12.47 kV substation is located in Niota, Tenn., and provides power primarily to the surrounding community. The substation also provides backup power to the Athens Utility Board's North Athens Substation.

"The load in Niota had grown to the point that AUB could no longer supply power to the city from the North Athens Substation," says Larry Monteen, superintendent of power at the AUB.
