In honor of Power Plant Worker Appreciation Day at Entergy Nuclear, meet Victoria “Tori” Stroburg, a mechanical maintenance supervisor at Waterford 3 Steam Electric Station.
Entergy Louisiana recently received approval from its regulator, the Louisiana Public Service Commission, to expand its gas infrastructure replacement program (GRIP) to include the replacement of vintage steel pipe.
Crews recently gathered in Jefferson Parish to undergo training and test the installation of concrete and composite utility poles. These materials are alternatives to wood poles that are in high demand across the country as utility companies ramp up grid hardening efforts.
Within one year after Hurricane Ida, Entergy rebuilds a Mississippi River crossing using an unprecedented 175-mph wind loading criteria.
To support a local roadway project and add resilience to the electric system, crews installed eight concrete poles in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Workers dug holes, used a crane to set poles and installed new wire. The project took place near Entergy’s facility along Pecue Lane that serves as the company’s state command center during times of major events such as power restoration following a hurricane.
We're building back stronger after Hurricane Ida caused significant damage across our coastal communities. Watch how we're making the electrical system more resilient.
At Entergy Louisiana, we are always working to improve the reliability of your service. This type of work is happening in every corner of our state.
By coordinating projects across our system on a more holistic basis, we’re able to focus on achieving sustainable reliability gains through these investments.
Entergy Louisiana and Entergy New Orleans are currently replacing hundreds of miles of cast iron, bare steel and other vintage gas pipes to modernize the companies’ gas delivery system.
