Power Reliability Improved
A household-named animal vaccine producer recently acquired this plant from previous owners, who expanded it in phases over time. This resulted in site staff being concerned about the plant’s electrical infrastructure’s reliability, and the difficulty of maintaining equipment and ensuring it to be safe and code-compliant. If the equipment wasn’t maintained, electrical power could have dropped more frequently, leading to production delays and revenue losses. EAD was contracted to solve this complex issue by centralizing and modernizing power distribution.
When future construction is completed, EAD will have provided them with an entirely new electrical distribution system with capacity for expansion. The project will install eight modular smart motor control centers (MCCs) and large electrical switchgear building with state-of-the-art automation and metering. Maintenance staff will be able to monitor and control the electrical system through a network of HMIs to view real-time data.
