Watts Electric Company

Union Pacific Railroad Generators

Location: Nebraska
Contract Amount: $1,771,000.00

The ice storm that paralyzed Nebraska in early 2008 was the catalyst for the UPRR to install standby generators at critical switching stations across Nebraska.

The power outages created by the ice storm effectively shut down UP’s main route to the transportation of many products, more especially coal used for the generation of electricity at power plants across the Midwest. The investment in these standby generators ensures dependable transportation and delivery of a vital natural resource.
