From Smart Grids to Cell Towers and Beyond
UTEC provides turnkey underground electric transmission construction maintenance and emergency response services nationwide.
When the city of Boston needed to be connected to major electric power sources by a 345kV transmission line that went under the Mystic River, over the Gilmore Bridge, and then under the Charles River and Boston Common, they called the company that sets the standard for excellence in underground transmission systems: UTEC.
Founded in 1970, UTEC Constructors provides the highest quality expertise and services in underground high voltage electrical transmission construction. Services provided include turnkey high voltage underground transmission, installations of high-pressure fluid-filled (HPFF) and high-pressure gas filled (HPGF) pipe-type cables, and splicing from 69kV – 345kV. In addition, UTEC performs XLPE installations of cable and conduits as well as underground distribution installations.
Using its specialized equipment and cutting-edge technical expertise, UTEC’s talented and dedicated teams have performed thousands of splices over the past decades. Most recently, an East Coast utility customer relied upon UTEC to successfully deliver a single cable pull that, from manhole to manhole, was over 7,000 feet in distance.
When it comes to high visibility power projects, you need a reliable partner you can trust. Count on UTEC. We provide comprehensive services, from the planning and community relations work that precedes major projects, to the design and installation of underground power networks, to 24/7 emergency response. Our clients include many of the country's leading power utilities from coast to coast.
UTEC’s turnkey approach includes:
- Project planning and design
- Selecting and coordinating subcontractors
- Working with affected communities
Complex installation projects have unique demands. Often, one-of-a-kind components and equipment need to be adapted, developed or constructed in order to complete the project. It's all in a day's work at UTEC. What's more, we often have one-of-a-kind pieces of equipment already available, which can make the crucial difference in bringing a job in on time and within budget.
From Hoboken to Hawaii, UTEC Constructors has installed, repaired and maintained miles of high voltage pipe cable, solving the tough problems that come with every mile.
Our splicers and welders have devoted their careers to the underground and underwater high voltage transmission systems field. Our technical experience is unmatched in the industry.
