An air-break switch consists of three basic structural elements: a reservoir with a supply of compressed air, an arc extinguisher, and an electropneumatic actuator. These disconnect switches being purchased are to be incorporated with the line reconductoring project from Chatham Main substation to Spaulding substation. A total of six (6) air break disconnects for the Chatham facilities to be purchased: three (3) in FY21, three (3) in FY22. These transmission line upgrades are necessary to increase load capacity on this tie line due to unit retirements.

These disconnect switches are needed for continued reliable operation of the system under certain load conditions. There were eight bidders on this contract, one local and seven non-local. Royal is not a local vendor, even with the 5% local vendor preference applied; Royal was still the lowest bid.
