If you take a close look at the front cover of the latest issue of T&D World magazine, you will notice several QVARx capacitor banks as part of Seattle’s brand new and unique Denny Substation!

Denny Substation is built in downtown Seattle, not only having to meet expectations of safety and reliability, but noise and visual design as well. This unique substation stands out from the rest with a 44.000 square foot open area, quarter mile walking trail and off-leash pet park, while providing viewing opportunities of the substation and surrounding area.

While the community friendly environment the substation provides is outstanding, the proximity of local residents requires the highest safety standards. QVARx products are the ideal solution for this application since anyone can build a capacitor bank, but only QVARx can build an arc resistant one!

Denny Substation was commissioned in May, 2018
