PROJECT BRIEF

The following emergency generator projects were recently designed by the Crane team as part of our prior established on-call contract in 2013.

 

Weights and Measures Building Emergency Back-up Generator
Installation of a new Emergency Back-up Generator and interface with the buildings existing electrical service.  The generator consisted of a brand new natural gas generator, rated 150KW. It has an outdoor, sound attenuated enclosure which is mounted on a concrete pad.  The 600A, 208V electrical service was reconfigured to meet the latest electrical code requirements and relocated to accommodate a new automatic transfer switch and distribution panel.

 

Courthouse Transfer Switch
Installation of a new stand-alone circuit breaker, modification to the existing switchgear and a docking cabinet for connection to a portable generator.  A new 2000A circuit breaker was used to make tap on the bus of a 3000A, 208V switchboard, and the new switch also was used to feed a 2000A generator docking station, with receptacles, mounted on the exterior wall of the building.  Owner will supply plugs, and portable generator.

 

Fueling Station Emergency Back-up Generator
Installation of a new Emergency Back-up Generator for the county’s primary fuel station.  The 40KW diesel generator was provided to back up the entire electrical service for the building and all of the associated equipment. An automatic transfer switch is connected to the 200A, 240V service, and the new pad mounted generator is mounted and had a sound attenuated enclosure.
