Entergy Arkansas Announces New Transmission Operations Center in Little Rock
Nov 10 14
Entergy Arkansas is breaking ground on a new $23-million Transmission Operations Center in Little Rock that will be one of two twin centers in the corporation's four-state service area. The 25,000-square-foot building will be a "nerve center" where employees monitor the status of the transmission system, coordinate line outages for maintenance or repair and remotely operate switches and breakers at substations. One of the current facilities is near the Gulf of Mexico and is more susceptible to storms and hurricanes. Moving those functions further from the Gulf allows transmission to reduce operational risks from such events. The new centers will also be hardened to withstand EF5 tornadoes. Consolidating the facilities will also result in significant savings, as maintaining two facilities costs less than maintaining six. The buildings are scheduled to be complete in summer 2016.
