Post Hurricane Sandy Emergency Inspections, U.S. Coast Guard

Colby Co. provided an engineering team three days after Hurricane Sandy’s landfall in New York and New Jersey for emergency inspection services. Our electrical and structural engineers joined a marine engineering firm to provide inspection of storm damage at three U.S. Coast Guard bases in the NY and NJ area.

They inspected exterior electrical distribution components to determine the conditions after being exposed to seawater from hurricane swells. The electrical services that were evaluated included 12.47kV utility tie-in and 480V & 208Y/120V pier distribution services.
