Entergy New Orleans will begin construction on the new Sullivan substation at the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans’ (SWBNO) Carrollton site.
The 60-megawatt Sullivan substation at the SWBNO’s Carrollton facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. Once finished, Entergy New Orleans will own, operate, and maintain the substation, which will benefit the SWBNO and all New Orleanians. The dedicated Sullivan substation will increase reliability to the SWBNO by providing service at the transmission level, so they can better support their customers.
“This is an important investment for the City of New Orleans that not only supports normal operations for the Sewerage and Water Board, but the future economic growth in New Orleans. This critical infrastructure project is needed to help support reliable service to the Sewerage and Water Board for generations to come,” said Deanna Rodriguez, President and CEO of Entergy New Orleans. “Providing improved reliability at the transmission level is important to both the Sewerage & Water Board and their customers, who also happen to be our customers.”
“A dedicated electrical substation at the future Sewerage and Water Board’s West Power Complex is important infrastructure for New Orleans and will bring much needed reliability and efficiency,” said SWBNO Executive Director Ghassan Korban. “A substation is part of building a modern power system. In addition to the substation, we are installing new backup turbines to provide in-house redundancy and added protection.”
The Sullivan substation will include two transmission lines and two transformers for redundancy on approximately two acres
