Lick Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Generator Addition
CLIENT City of College Station
PROJECT COST $1.1 Million
LOCATION College Station, TX
College Station, TX
Rated Paralleling Gear
Automatic Transfer Switch
Our team worked with the City of College Station to evaluate generator options for the Lick Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. We developed a solution to size the generator for current usage and to ease the process of installing future parallel generators. The project required our team to make modifications to an existing 3000A dual-feed electrical service and to install two 3000A automatic transfer switches and one 3000A rated paralleling gear. Our team also designed a 600-kilowatt generator system, which provides power to the plant and process facilities. Additionally, we ensured that control and monitoring data for the emergency backup paralleling system was integrated into the plant’s existing Allen-Bradley SCADA system.
Our team reconfigured an existing 12’ x 10’ x 8’ electrical manhole and duct bank to reconnect the automatic transfer switch load side service to an existing dual-fed switchgear. The project was sequenced to allow for safe installation by phasing to allow work to be done in the manhole while the circuit was not hot. The improvements also provided the capacity to install additional future paralleled gensets without power transition or lapses in service.
