Emergency Power Plant Upgrade
The expected load growth of our clients site has driven the need to upgrade the High Voltage (HV) generator system . The existing site HV Generation system will only support a maximum of 10 MVA and with the expected potential load growth over the next 10 years to 20 MVA has driven an upgrade of the existing generator system from 4 x 4MVA generators to 4 x 7 MVA generators in a N + 1 configuration.
There are a number of complexities for the project involving maintaining the required generator redundancy during the implementation of a new emergency power system for the site. It will require implementation of an additional temporary generator system to support immediate load increases planned for the site. The site will effectively have a current, temporary and new generator system to provide support to the site and balance the load requirements co-operatively through the project stages until completion.
