New York City Transit is seeking to retain the services of a Design-Build team to Design, Furnish and Deliver Four Deployable Battery-Powered Substations ("DBPS"). NYC Transit's subway system depends on traction power to run subway service. The network of substations in the system convert high-tension AC power to the DC power used for train propulsion. Substations located in the low-lying areas along the coastline were damaged by floodwater from Superstorm Sandy, which resulted in prolonged service outages and required emergency repairs to restore service. DBPS are part of NYC Transit's overall resiliency strategy for restoring traction power to flood damaged substations.
