- Location: Ocean Village, NY
- Main Contractor: Hellman Electric
- Established: 2010
- Project Description:
After a storm damaged the Ocean Village Switchgear House, Hellman Electric responded within 24 hours to provide and maintain (5) 500kW and (2) 250kW generators, supplying temporary power to the 9 buildings affected, with refueling every eight hours.
