Solomon Corporation Aids Emergency Power Restoration Efforts in Saipan
In October, Solomon Corporation employees at multiple locations provided significant overtime hours rebuilding 486 rewound transformers, beginning the recovery efforts for citizens of Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands. At the beginning of the month, Solomon delivered the first 100 of the 486 rebuilt transformers to FEMA for delivery to the U.S. Commonwealth, which suffered serious damage when super typhoon Soudelor hit the area on August 2 and 3. Heavy rain and sustained winds of 180-220 mph knocked out the state’s power plant leaving the area without power. The storm earned the unfortunate categorization of the strongest storm on Earth to date in 2015 by The Weather Channel.
