   Paul WilliamsOlsson’s transmission and distribution (T&D) services just got a little bigger. It’s part of Olsson’s commitment to providing services in the T&D industry since the company’s early years. That commitment means bringing additional experts on board. Olsson hired Paul Williams, PE, to lead the T&D program. Travis Carnes, PE, is the newest addition to the expanded team.

Paul’s extensive background in project management and design, as well as his familiarity with Olsson, made him a perfect fit for the firm.

“I actually worked with Olsson on projects prior to interviewing for the new position,” Paul said. “I was impressed with the firm’s Midwestern values. In other words, the people here at Olsson not only work hard, but they are also friendly and trustworthy.” Travis Carnes

Travis’ experience includes T&D client management, design, project management, and quality control on a wide range of transmission line engineering projects.

“With the hiring of Paul and Travis, Olsson can help electric utilities nationwide with their high voltage T&D project needs,” said Brad Strittmatter, Olsson president. “This initiative will allow Olsson to expand on the electric design work we have been providing to clients since the inception of the company in 1956.”

                                                                        Olsson is proud of its 60 years of experience in designing utility and industrial electrical systems. Paul says with this expansion of the T&D group, Olsson will provide more flexibility than other firms in responding to changes that inevitably occur on projects. Transmission line projects often require professionals with a variety of expertise from survey and geotechnical to environmental and construction. Olsson provides all of those services under one roof.

“Our T&D additions will complement existing services Olsson provides and allow the company to support new types of projects with expanded areas of expertise,” Paul said. “Recently, the T&D industry has had unprecedented growth. I think there is unlimited opportunity for Olsson to support T&D clients.”
