The Ft. Randall Transformer Replacement project involved removing and responsibly disposing of three single-phase 115kv transformers and nine single-phase 230kv transformers. In their place, we installed one three-phase 115kv transformer and three three-phase 230kv transformers.

Our commitment to environmental responsibility led us to install oil containment measures to prevent potential spillage. Additionally, we installed new rail track systems for efficient equipment transportation and maintenance.

Overall, the project modernized Ft. Randall Dam’s electrical infrastructure, improving reliability, safety, and environmental compliance.

Koontz Electric Co. Inc. received a challenge coin from the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) for their dedication and expertise. This coin signifies the trust earned as a valued partner supporting USACE’s mission.
