Our engineering, design and consultancy expertise can provide innovative solutions for your substation project.


Substation Engineering

Our clients have trusted Stanley Consultants to solve complex engineering challenges for over a century. Since our earliest days constructing the power lines that brought electricity to the Midwest, our experts have worked with diverse clients, including utilities, industries, institutions and government agencies of all sizes. We assist our partners in planning, permitting, designing, procuring, managing and inspecting their substation projects.

Our clients entrust their capital investments to us because we can offer integrated solutions, alternative delivery methods and comprehensive lifecycle project services. We help our partners optimize assets, mitigate risk, enhance efficiency and reliability and manage operating costs.

We are committed to creating secure, resilient and reliable power supplies. Our capabilities allow us to be adaptable to projects of all kinds, including:

  • Voltage. We’ve designed substations ranging from 34.5 kV to 500 kV.

  • Technologies. Our designs have incorporated both gas- and air-insulated technologies.

  • Role. We have extensive experience in owners engineer services, design engineering for traditional design-bid-build contracts and engineering or lead company positions for engineer-procure-construct (EPC) contracts.
