12BENEFITS AND APPLICATION OF ERS: ERS APPLICATION Interruption of power can cause high fines and costs to a transmission company.Therefore SBB ERS towers can be used to quickly, safely and efficiently:Restore power interrupted by natural disasters, sabotage or vandalism.Perform maintenance on a power line and minimizing the outage time.Perform new construction of power lines, cross roads, or new substations.Perform renovations on old lines.Perform hotline maintenance.The list is endless…ERS APPLICATION
13CONSTRUCTION OF NEW IKEA NORWAY – LYSE ENERGY Line deviation for new building construction using SBB ERS Tower can significantly reduce the construction time.Companies can focus on building without the stress of power outage for long periods.CONSTRUCTION OF NEW IKEA NORWAY – LYSE ENERGY
14SNOW STORM SLOVENIA – ELEKTRO LJUBLJANA Quick reaction to a storm or a flood is very important.After a field and software training, our clients are capable to face virtually any situation that come their way.SNOW STORM SLOVENIA – ELEKTRO LJUBLJANA
15Several Teams can work simultaneously and safely on several lines in parallel. Our clients can quickly restore power during an emergency and then focus on the cleanup.FLOOD BRAZIL – CEEE
16CONSTRUCTION OF NEW SUBSTATION NORTHERN IRELAND – NIE A contractor bidding on a maintenance project can save both money and time.Projects will take less time to accomplish using the SBB ERS towers, since the scheduling will be optimized.CONSTRUCTION OF NEW SUBSTATION NORTHERN IRELAND – NIE
17LINE DEVIATION FOR HIGHWAY CROSSING MALAYSIA – TTSB Highway crossing does not allow for long periods of shutdown and the available space to work is very limited.SBB ERS towers have a small foot print and require no heavy equipment to put up. It’s quick assembly allows for smaller windows of power shutdown.LINE DEVIATION FOR HIGHWAY CROSSING MALAYSIA – TTSB
18CONSTRUCTION OF NEW HIGHWAY ABU-DHABI – KEC Building a new highway can demand the deviation of an existing line.The SBB ERS Towers, are an effective way to do so and can keep power circulating until the final arrangement of the new line is done.CONSTRUCTION OF NEW HIGHWAY ABU-DHABI – KEC
19HOTLINE (LIVE LINE) MAINTENANCE PARAGUAY – ANDE When power outage is not an option, SBB ERS towers are the only option.Hotline, or live line, maintenance can be performed using “hot sticks” to transfer the conductors from the old tower to the SBB ERS Tower.HOTLINE (LIVE LINE) MAINTENANCE PARAGUAY – ANDE
20MUD SLIDE & TOWER COLAPSE NORTHERN IRELAND – NIE Support is key in any emergency. Our team of engineers offers it when the client needs it the most.SBB Offers free technical support for all your emergency needs.MUD SLIDE & TOWER COLAPSE NORTHERN IRELAND – NIE
21“Efficiency and Safety” ERS TOWER COMPONENTS“Efficiency and Safety”All SBB ERS tower components and tools are designed with efficiency and safety on our mind. SBB Towers do not require concrete bases. It is as easy as placing a plate on the ground and start building.
22BPL-0016: Aluminum Base Plate Aluminum base plate requires no foundation.Larger foundations are available for soft soils that do not have the required bearing capacity.BPL-0016: Aluminum Base Plate
23ABS-0830: Articulated Base The Articulated Base has 360° rotation on the horizontal plan and 180° on the vertical plan.Allows the tower to be installed on uneven ground.ABS-0830: Articulated Base
24MSC-4129: 3m (10’) Mast Section MSC-4126: 2m (6’) Mast Section 2.904m – 135kgMast sections are piled one on top of the other like Lego® blocks.Each hole on the mast section is positioned at 31cm apart. Each one acts as an attachment point for the different brackets.Each corner acts as a railing system that will allow some of the equipment to slide on the tower without interruption.1.977m – 96kgMSC-4129: 3m (10’) Mast Section MSC-4126: 2m (6’) Mast Section
25The swivel guy plate consists of 4 components and can be installed at any hole. It takes seconds to install on the tower.The guy plate is used to fix the guy wires (stays) or to connect the suspension/strain insulators to the tower.GPL-0270: Swivel Guy Plate
26LPB-S56U: Post Insulator Bracket Post insulators are attached at any level using the functionality of the holes. Brackets are designed to fix them to the tower.LPB-S56U: Post Insulator Bracket
34LOGISTICSOur Towers are shipped in maritime containers that act as a way of mobilizing as well as storing the material.Three options exist:Container storage systemRailing for lifting heavy itemsWood crates
35TRAININGSBB specialists offer their help and expertise in order to offer the best results in using the SBB ERS Towers.The typical training program consists of:5 days field training3 days software training
37TRAINING CENTERS ASBRO, SWEDEN SVENSKA KRAFTNAT LUSAKA, ZAMBIA KGRTC TERREBONNE, QUEBECSBB
38SOFTWARE ANALYSIS“PlS-CADD /LITE & PLS-POLE/LW+MAST”The solution comes with a software that is both intuitive and easy to use. Making it easy for the end user to customize the configuration to the specific need of the situation.
39SOFTWARE ANALYSIS PLS – CADD / LITE PLS – POLE / LW+MAST Main program in which all the impact of the outside conditions is analyzed. Such conditions are:Weather conditions and wind loads;Type of conductor & OHGW;Conductor & OHGW tension;Number of conductors per phase;Line angle;Span length;Etc…A module to define the ERS structure’s:Tower components capacitiesNumber of guy (stay) wiresInsulators mechanical capacitiesGeometrical characteristics of the elementsEtc…
42RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT “Constant improvement”Our design philosophy is that there is always a better way of doing things. SBB has engaged itself in constantly trying to improve the tower and its components.
47SPECIAL PROJECTS“Client cooperation”Working closely with our clients, SBB will adapt the solution to their needs.
48SPECIAL PROJECTS – MEGA TOWER THE CHALLENGEExtremely critical transmission tower to replaceRiver crossing: 30m clearance required800m spans to the shoreHeavy loads: 26 cables (24 cond. + 2 OHGW)Island setting: very limited space on the ground for guys & anchors
49SPECIAL PROJECTS – MEGA TOWER 128M HIGH TOWERSELF SUPPORTEDNO GUY WIRES
50SPECIAL PROJECTS – TOWER CRANE Assemble lattice towers in difficult or inaccessible terrainLift 4.5 tonsEliminates the need to construct roads to enable a crane truck to access the site.Environmentally friendly: Cutting down of trees not required.
51FINANCING“EXPORT DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION”A Crown Corporation wholly owned by the government of Canada.
52FINANCING THROUGH EDC Operates in over 200 markets worldwide Loans offer flexible financing options for foreign buyers of Canadian goods and/or servicesGuarantees can be provided when another financial institution is prepared to participate in the financing of an export sale.
