When it comes to resiliency, utilities are taking many different paths. Some are raising substations to protect them from flooding. Others are replacing wood utility poles with metal ones, and others still are investing in state-of-the-art software and hardware that allows the grid to automatically isolate faults.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, however, has other ideas about what a resilient grid might look like. As part of its aptly named Resilient Electric Grid, or REG, project, DHS is giving $60 million to AMSC and Commonwealth Edison to install a high-temperature superconductor cable to increase the resilience of ComEd’s system in Chicago.

The project will be both ...

Telecommunications services in Southeast Alaska were snarled Friday after a 5.9-magnitude earthquake apparently cut a crucial seabed data cable.

"The earthquake damaged our submarine fiber-optic cable and so we're working on repairing it right now," said Hannah Blankenship, spokesperson for Alaska Communications Systems Group. 

But ACS was unable to provide much additional information about how widespread the outages were or how many customers were affected. ACS provides both wireless and Internet service.

The severed cable was the company's primary link to Juneau, connecting offshore to the company’s main fiber-optic line between Alaska and the Lower 48, she said.

Tag: Press Releases

OAO Severstal is a major Russian steelmaker, owned by billionaire Alexy Mordashov. As tensions grow between the United States and Russia, Severstal has sold their two U.S.-based steel plants. They have sold the plants to Steel Dynamics Inc. and AK Steel Holding Corp. for $2.33 billion. With this sale, Severstal has exited the U.S. market completely. 

Thus far, neither Severstal nor Mordashov have been the target of U.S. or European Union sanctions. However, Bank Rossiya was targeted by the U.S., and Mordashov has a 6 percent holding of this bank. Considering the unstable relationship between the two countries, this final sale marking the exit of the U.S. market could not have come at a ...
