Simpson Ave Bridge - Hoquiam

This unique project was extensive retrofit of an existing draw bridge. This project allowed Totem to utilize its expertise in industrial craftsmanship. This project involved installation of new main power switchgear, large submarine cable installation, an extensive control system, traffic control gates, lighting and a new control house. Totem led the coordination effort alongside the millwrights to ensure the precise tolerances of the gearing and braking systems were met.

Central WW Treatment Plant

Schnitzer Steel Transformer

Totem Electric undertook a major industrial project at the City’s central plant to provide an integrated control system. This complex project was multi-phased in a 24/7 operating wastewater facility. Through careful planning with plant staff, our controls experts completed numerous controls cut overs without incident. Elements of this project included installation of fiber optic systems, PLC controls, Human Interface Machines, Industrial piping valves and actuators and extensive work in corrosive environments.

This was a fast track project to get the customer back up and running after a power failure. Totem installed a new 15kV distribution transformer and associated feeders.  We provided cable splicing services and completed service and maintenance on existing 15kV switchgear. Through our efforts, the customer was able to return to full operation in just a few short days.
