NJ Transit, Mason & Building 9 Substations

NJ Transit, Mason & Building 9 Substations

Project Overview

Mason and Building 9 Substations are both major components of the New Jersey Transit infrastructure. Mason Substation is widely regarded as one of the most important traction power substations in the NJ Transit System. It distributes power to a majority of the Morris & Essex Line. It is also used to backfeed power to other substations on the Morris & Essex mainline. Mason Substation will also be the connection point for the future NJT Transit Grid Project. The Building 9 Substation serves the operations of NJ Transit’s rail maintenance facility, the central command and control facility, and its entire fleet. As a part of PSE&G’s Energy Strong program, Mason and Building 9 Substations will be rebuilt to be less susceptible to damage from wind, flying debris, and water damage in case of major storm events.

Envision is provided cost analysis, cost estimating services, and schedule analysis for the Mason and Building 9 Substation replacements which are a part of the Sandy Resilience Program. Mason and Building 9 Substations were completely rebuilt and the new Mason Substation is a node that will feed Building 9.
