Parting Shot: HECO

HECO Manhole #191F, Rodgers Blvd. at Airport Substation

>> Working foreman Bobby Nakaji, left, and senior cable splicers Dean Ponimoi and Mike Oasay, right, work to complete the installation of a primary underground power cable. These kinds of installations are typical of the work that HECO does every day under the streets of Oahu. This manhole is new and spacious. Older ones are so crammed with cables – some carrying up to 48,000 volts – that only two crewmen at a time can fit and temperatures reach over 110 degrees.
