Utility Success Story

The Western region of the Public Power Utilities team had a great 3rd quarter 2017. The main contributor to this success was City of Vernon in CA who awarded VT-GT with a prestigious contract to supply four (4) 66/16.34 kV, 33.6//56 MVA unit Load Tap Changers to Vernon’s Leonis SS upgrades.  The best part of the deal is that VT-GT was L5 after evaluation of Total Ownership Cost with not only Far East competition like Pan America & Iljin but North American companies like WEG & CG lower than us, however VT-GT was preferred over these bidders.

The entire credit of winning this contract in the most competitive environment goes to the prior experience & relationship we shared with Vernon and with our Southern CA rep Richard Salemme – McAvoy & Markham playing an instrumental role. Richard & Sunny Xavier started early in the game (a couple of months before the bids hit the street) to help the engineers at Vernon with budget prices & develop the specifications with several conference calls & follow ups. A total of 12 bidders from Far East & North America participated in the bid & VT-GT emerged as the winner.
