PLANT CRITICAL SYSTEMS DOCUMENTATION AND ARC FLASH SURVEY
Northwest Electrical Services was contracted to perform a full survey of an international power generating facility of all critical systems and documentation.
The survey covered all Electrical, Pressurized systems including medium temperature hot water and steam, fuel systems both heavy and light fuel oil.
Included in the survey was the delivery of the following:
- Updated and, in many cases, new P&I diagrams for all systems.
- New electrical single line diagrams for HV, MV, LV systems including UPS, DC power and control system power.
- Equipment listings for each system including manufacturer, model numbers, design and performance data to ensure replacement components satisfy original design criteria.
Northwest Electrical Services also provided services for an Arc Flash Study of plant systems resulting in the identification and rectification of some problem areas and applied NFPA 70E code required signage greatly increasing the safe working environment for working staff.
Northwest Electrical Services utilizes ETAP software for the studies of electrical systems.
The project was completed in Q4 2010.
