Federal Pacific, a division of Electro-Mechanical, is proud to announce the delivery of its Type PSV switchgear to the highly anticipated Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Bristol. Federal Pacific’s Type PSV switchgear is SCADA-ready and comes with a versatile configuration of power handling and protection components. The dead-front design of the PSV switchgear amplifies the security of protection and switch components, not only addressing environmental concerns but also elevating the isolation of medium-voltage circuits to minimize exposure for operating personnel.

The Hard Rock Casino Bristol, a groundbreaking joint venture between Hard Rock International and Bristol Resort & Casino, is shaping up to be a $520 million spectacle, breathing new life into the former Bristol Mall site. The grand opening, slated for July 2024, promises to be a significant milestone for the City of Bristol, VA.

Federal Pacific’s Type PSV switchgear will help distribute power to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Bristol including:

  • A sprawling 90,000-square-foot gaming floor housing 2,700 slot machines and 100 table games
  • Five distinct restaurants and four bars, offering a diversity of culinary experiences
  • Entertainment venues, including a 3,200-seat entertainment center and an outdoor venue capable of hosting up to 20,000 guests
  • The Hard Rock hotel, initially featuring 300 guest rooms and suites, has plans for future expansion to accommodate 750 guest rooms

Electro-Mechanical and Federal Pacific underscore their commitment to providing state-of-the-art electrical solutions for high-profile projects. The Type PSV Air-Insulated Vacuum Interrupter Switchgear is poised to play a crucial role in the safe and efficient operation of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Bristol.
