SGH Gets ACEC/MA Award

| June 17, 2019

Award-winning Belmont Municipal Light

Belmont, MA -The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Simpson Gumpertz & Heger (SGH) of Waltham as a silver award winner for its work on the Belmont Light Underground Transmission Line.

The 2019 Awards were announced at the recent ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala.

Belmont Light needed to upgrade its aging substation and power transmission and distribution systems to improve reliability and prepare for growing demands.

The project involved constructing a new substation in Belmont and two 0.8 mile, 115kV buried transmission lines along an existing MBTA commuter rail right-of-way.

This alignment, while the least disruptive to the community, posed significant technical challenges and at one point was considered practically unbuildable.
