CPW awards bids to begin substation construction near Inland Port
Bids totaling nearly $665,000 for grading and the purchase of steel for the Greer Commission of Public Works substation at Victor Hill were awarded today at the monthly utilities’ public meeting.

The contract between CPW and Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District, where the property exists on Victor Hill Road, is undergoing its final review, said CPW General Manager Jeffrey Tuttle.

The funding for the $2.5 - $3 million substation was secured from Santee Cooper Electric Cooperative with a $3.5 million, 5-year interest free loan last year.

C. Henry Steel of Indiana was awarded the low bid of $451,430 for steel and other furnishings for the structure. Strange Bros. Grading of Taylors was approved for its $212,538 bid for grading the site. Commissioners Jeff Howell, Eugene Gibson and Perry Williams were unanimous on both bids. The project is expected to take 10 months once grading begins.

The site is just short of the Norfolk Southern rail spur on Victor Hill Road that services BMW and the Inland Port.

Duke Energy high power transmission lines will transfer power to the substation.
