Vanquish Fencing

Substation Animal Mitigation Fencing

VANQUISH Systems are environmentally friendly and safe to use. They protect the substation by deterring small crawling animals such as snakes, squirrels, raccoons, rats, iguanas, frogs, and feral cats from entering the substation environment in the first place. Eliminating access altogether prevents the animal from interacting with the electrical equipment and being harmed, and protects electrical equipment from becoming inoperative, which could result in power outages and customer dissatisfaction.

Electric Utilities spend millions of dollars a year repairing damage caused by animals that have entered the substation and made contact with high dollar electrical equipment. In most cases, the animal does not survive the encounter and the resulting outage caused by the incident is experienced by thousands of customers, possibly for an extended period of time.

VANQUISH’s™ Animal Deterrent System requires no ongoing maintenance and has the same life expectancy as a standard chain-link fence so you can just install it and forget about it. It is a permanent component of the substation that does not have to be removed to perform maintenance to the enclosed equipment it protects.
