NYPA Sensor Deployment
(Central and Western Regions)
Haydan serves in the lead role of the Construction Management team for the New York Power Authority’s (NYPA’s) Sensor Deployment Program in the Central and Western regions, which consists of the installation of sensors to support the transformation of New York’s power system into a state-of-the-art digital network — moving NYPA closer to its goal of being the first all-digital utility. The sensor deployment program incorporated new technologies to perform online monitoring of power plants, substations and power lines to increase efficiency and productivity and improve resiliency of the state-wide public power network. As the leader of the CMT, Haydan serves a number of functions, including but not limited to, liaising between NYPA, consultants and contractors, reviewing all project specifications and NYPA policies, procedures and standards, performing design and constructability reviews, monitoring “critical activities” on site, providing inspection of all work in place, monitoring the contractor’s work force, schedule and production, making staffing recommendations to achieve optimum productivity and preparing daily construction reports documenting the project’s progress.
