Project Scope:

Sunoco Logistics Partners LP provides storage and distribution services for refiners and other large transporters of petroleum products. In 2014, the firm announced plans to add 160 miles of underground pipeline in Ohio and Pennsylvania in order to deliver petroleum from expanding production areas and refineries to markets where demand exists. Sunoco Logistics contracted IPS to provide a power distribution solution to fit the needs of the expanded system.

IPS self-performed all electrical and civil work to construct the Pemberville substation. Work on this 34.5kv-4.16 kv, 3-Phase substation included installation of a 34.5 kv/7000 kva 3-phase transformer; all wiring; grounding (deadhead, grid, CT & PT metering stands, fencing, ground mats, hydronic piping mains); transformer containment; and civil work.


During the project, IPS worked closely with the local utility to schedule the high voltage tie-ins. The project required precise coordination to complete the work on the substation and transmission lines, and to ensure scheduled outages were kept to an absolute minimum. IPS successfully completed the project on time and within budget.

Project Scope:

IPS built and owns 1 MW solar array located at Collins Park Water Treatment Plant. IPS sells 100% of the power produced at the facility to the water treatment plant. The facility was constructed as part of a public/private partnership to provide the water treatment plant with renewable energy over the next 25 years. The project also cuts down on electricity costs considerably for the City of Toledo.

IPS planned, financed and built the facility. During construction, IPS managed the engineering and procurement of the facility. IPS subcontracted the civil and structural components as well and self-performed the electrical work.


This was a fast track construction phase that was completed in 3 months in order to begin production at a time of high energy demand. Construction was impeded by an unusually wet spring, but the facility was completed on time and on budget.
