Project Description:

Uninterrupted, reliable electrical power is essential to the continuous operation of refinery process operations. This project replaced an existing substation by adding new electrical equipment to a different substation, providing redundancy and greater reliability. Existing 2.4KV and 480V MCC’s were replaced, and two additional 1500 KVA liquid filled transformers were installed, along with double ended 480V arc resistant switchgear assembly busses with auto transfer scheme.

SPEC provided preliminary and detailed engineering and design. SPEC prepared single line diagrams, area classification drawings, equipment specifications, motor schematics, cable tray design, transformer foundations, and structural design.
