Seaford power substation project hits milestone


The mood in Seaford was electric on Tuesday, after crews passed a major milestone in the construction of a power substation project.  Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation Crews dropped a new 45-thousand pound three-room control house into place.

Part of the Pine Street Expansion and Reconstruction Project; a $9 million effort to combine two power substations and improve multiple main distribution lines, designed to increase reliability and efficiency of electrical service throughout Seaford.

DEMEC officials say once the control house is fully installed, crews will pull control wiring from the transformers and breakers out in the substation into the control house. DEMEC broke ground on the project in late last June and expect it to be in service by next June.
