A 1.6MW Solution Supports an Electrical Upgrade in a Busy Downtown Core

Providing temporary power in downtown settings can be challenging – noise bylaws, heavy traffic and densely situated infrastructure all contribute to the puzzle. And the larger the project is, the greater the challenge can be.

There’s nothing the Trinity team likes more than a challenge.

So when a client came to us recently looking for a 1.6MW temporary power solution for a project located in a busy downtown core, we were excited for the chance to provide them with the turn-key solution that they needed.

Here’s how we did it.

The Challenge: Switchgear Replacement in a Downtown Core
