Niwot Ridge Project
This was a unique project located on top of Niwot Ridge in Nederland, CO. The Univ of Colo is conducting a 30-year study on the growth of the tundra, and they hired TNT Electric to run 14,400 volts up the mountain to the project site.
We had to heat and form our conduit to match the terrain and the grade of the mountain, it was so steep we had to use extra expansion joints to keep the conduits intact during extreme temperature changes.
To say the least it was a very challenging project, moving of material alone was a massive undertaking, however, we truly enjoyed this project and we are looking forward to future work in the area from our customer.
