Storm Hardening Capabilities
Over the last ten years, Quanta Technology consultants have led the industry in the study of strategies for infrastructure reinforcement for the purpose of reducing damage from severe weather and shortening the restoration time following weather damage. These concepts, known collectively as "storm hardening," are not new to the utility industry. Recent public and regulatory pressure; however, arising from extended restoration times following major weather events, has caused an interest by utilities in examining broader storm hardening strategies that incorporate varying elements of distribution grid design, operation and maintenance. Quanta Technology's efforts in this arena have been widely documented.
