Sitewide Generation Plant Backup Power & Black Start System
ITAC was responsible for integrating the new emergency diesel generator system with the plant’s existing complex controls to provide for a completely automated power restoration capability upon loss of offsite power. ITAC designed and built the custom Arc Resistant 5KV generator paralleling switchgear. We incorporated fuel spill containment around the EDG’s foundations for refueling operations, which eliminated the need for an independent structure requiring electrical, piping, and pumping equipment and reduced overall cost. We supplied sound-attenuated enclosures to meet site stringent noise requirements. We also provided the flexibility to maintain PJM final acceptance testing on schedule during the COVID-19 pandemic. We performed and coordinated a successful acceptance test with the site while the ITAC team and the client’s engineering team were at remote locations.
