Transformer Pads & Substations

Transformers and substations help generate, modify, and distribute electricity. If a transformer pad or substation is not contained, leaking mineral oil can penetrate the ground, causing an environmental hazard. By lining a transformer pad or substation, the ground is safe from any mineral oil. LCSI’s geomembrane liners are durable enough to last and, in some cases, can be installed within a day or two, weather permitting.

Fully contained substation applications can require a great deal of detail work. Fitting the liner to concrete walls, pads, and pipe stands can be a challenge. LCSI prefabricates corner units, sumps, and pipe boots to reduce installation time onsite and ensure the best possible end product for the owner. LCSI can also provide/install petro barriers to allow rain water to drain through special pipes that capture and contain oil in case of a spill or leak.

Advantages of transformer pads

  • Protects ground from contamination
  • All field seams are tested during installation for integrity
  • Reduce the requirement to pump out rain and snow melt after storms

Applications for transformer pads

  • Transformer Pads
  • Substations
  • Temporary generators/skid mounted generators
