Probst Electric was subcontracted to perform over three miles of duct bank installation, medium voltage (MV) conductor/splice/termination installation for highly secure Government installation. We installed 6” – 12 way duct bank. This duct bank included 25 precast manholes for splicing, looping and racking the conductor as well as being concrete encased and reinforced. It had the rebar stirrups and longitudinal supports as well as a 4/0 grounding conductor installed the length of the duct bank. Similar spacers were utilized to achieve the necessary spacing requirements for ducts as well as concrete cover. Much of this duct bank was installed on a significant slope that increased the difficulty of duct bank installation. Probst installed, spliced and terminated parallel 35KV feeders directly from an existing substation to four different facility transformers that stepped voltage down from 35KV to 15KV. From those transformers, we installed all the 15KV feeders and terminated them into the facility switchgear lineups.
