POWER: CPS Energy R&A (36th St. Substation)

One of a series of new heavy-construction projects for the repair and alteration (R&A) of the existing CPS Energy substation array. This new construction Project at the 36th St. Substation modernized a previous Kelly Air Force Base (KAFB) Substation (SS) to meet the present and future needs of Port San Antonio. The Project included installing and managing the temporary Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SW3P), grubbing & clearing, placing base, demolition of a decommissioned fuel-system pipeline, excavation, subgrade prep, and the installation of SS grounding loops, a precast Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) tank, and chainlink/barbed wire security fence and gates.

Port San Antonio is a master-planned, 1,900 acre aerospace, industrial complex and international logistics platform that is centrally located in San Antonio, Texas. Created from the former KAFB, Port San Antonio is approximately equidistant from the East and West coasts of the United States and at the center of the NAFTA Corridor between Mexico and Canada. The entire development enjoys designation as a Foreign Trade Zone (#80-10). Transportation offerings at Port San Antonio  include an airport with an 11,500 foot runway, accessibility by two Class I railroads (Union Pacific and BNSF), and three Interstate Highways (IH-35, IH-10 and IH-37). Markets of more than 90 million people are within two days drive of Port San Antonio. Five major seaports are accessible within a three day drive, and include the Port of Houston, the Port of Corpus Christi, the Port of Manzanillo, the Port of Lazaro Cardenas and the Port of Veracruz.
