Generator Replacement

Challenge

A municipal client needed to guarantee power to their village hall in the event of a utility power failure. Their current generator only supported portions of their village hall with emergency power and they needed a new unit designed to provide emergency power to the entire building.

Solution

Valdes conducted site investigations and worked with the village to determine the siting of the generator. Valdes also worked with the manufacturer to select a generator that was within acceptable decibel levels as it was determined that the best location for the generator was near the village manager’s offices.

Impact

Valdes designed a new generator for the municipal client to supply emergency power to their village hall. New electrical panels and a new automatic transfer switch were included in the project. Valdes worked with the village through construction and start-up to make certain that the generator met the village's needs for emergency power.
