Sponsored by

TRC Companies recently won a contract by Public Service of New Mexico (PNM) to harden the utility's substation in Tome, New Mexico. TRC will design, procure, and construct substation improvements using cutting edge technology to enhance existing facility protections.

The new security systems will help PNM meet current and future NERC CIP compliance requirements and will provide sophisticated analytics to better understand and prevent security incidents.

"We are pleased to expand our power engineering services to Public Service of New Mexico and to enhance the security of their Tome substation," said Dan Banks, RCDD, TRC's National Communications Engineering Manager. "The upgraded designs and the physical hardening of major assets in the electric grid is a necessary component of any utility's efforts to provide uninterrupted, reliable and cost effective service."

TRC's scope of work also includes oversight of installation subcontractors and the integration of the project into PNM's existing Security Operations Center. The pilot project is expected to be completed in May, and is the first of five to be completed in the 2014-2015 timeframe.
