WILLISTON, N.D. — An electric cooperative in North Dakota’s oil country has opened a new building to improve conditions for the workers who keep the power on.
KXMC-TV reports that Mountrail-Williams Electrical Cooperative cut the ribbon on a 45,000-square-foot warehouse in Williston that will house a fleet of more than 50 trucks, as well as locker rooms and showers for workers who respond to problems in the system.
Mountrail-Williams Manager Dale Haugen says the new facilities are “just beyond belief.”
The new building will also be used by Basin Electric Cooperative to improve response time for servicing high voltage transmission lines in the Williston region.
