(Neb.)-NPPD Brings Mobile Transformer To Chadron
(Chadron, NE)-Nebraska Public Power District is taking action to prevent major power outages to Chadron by moving a Mobile Transformer unit and circuit switcher to the Chadron substation.
Spokesman Mark Becker, says that the equipment is currently being installed and should be ready for service Wednesday evening.
Becker says the mobile transformer is being installed in the event of another substation failure like the one in July that caused the entire city to be without power for eight hours.
That outage was caused by lighting, but earlier this spring the city was out for several hours because of a failure at the WAPA substation.
In all the city has had three extended outages this year.
Becker said that there will not be an outage during installation of the mobile transformer.
