Project Description

Project involved the preparation of conceptual, preliminary and detailed designs, project management of electrical, mechanical, structural, and architectural works, cost estimating, implementation of testing, and commissioning program and operational testing for the improvement of the 4.16kV power generation and power distribution system serving the Halifax Stanfield International Airport.

Scope of Work

The specific scope of the project included the following elements:

  • Preparation of technical specifications for the purpose of tendering all major power generation and distribution equipment, including three (3) 2000kW diesel engine generator sets, five (5) 4.16kV switchgear assemblies, 125Vdc station battery and charger, power cables and protection, control, SCADA, generators and circuit breakers distributed synchronizing controls and integration with utility 25kV transfer switch.
  • Preparation of detailed design drawings, including single line diagrams, AC schematic diagrams, DC schematic diagrams, wiring diagrams, equipment general arrangement diagrams, architectural, structural and mechanical system drawings, diesel engine cooling system and fuel oil storage and supply drawings, electrical interconnection diagrams, etc.
  • Preparation of contractor installation documents suitable for tendering to qualified contractors.
  • Preparation and implementation of detailed system integration schedules. Integration of the new equipment was carried out during a series of planned shutdowns to maintain normal airport operations.
  • Preparation of detailed installed cost estimates.
  • Overall project management.
  • Site supervision for major equipment installation and system integration activities.
  • Site testing of individual electrical devices and mechanical components and commissioning of power generation and power distribution systems.
