Hudson Transmission Project Converter Station Site Preparation

Location

Ridgefield, New Jersey

Project Size

113,000 Square Feet

The Hudson Transmission Project was a 660 MW electric transmission link between New York City and the PJM grid that commenced construction in May 2011. The converter station transformed AC power from the PJM grid to DC, and then back to AC within the same site (called “back-to- back conversion”). The AC-DC- AC conversion allows for the delivery of up to 660 MW of power in a very precisely controlled and reliable manner to serve NYPA’s New York City customers.

Joseph Jingoli and Son, Inc. provided site preparation services for the converter station site. This scope of work included demolition of a 113,000 Square Feet warehouse and site infrastructure, removal of 40,000 cubic yards of environmentally sensitive material, dewatering with treatment and importing 60,000 tons of clean fill.
