MCC Upgrades – Major Terminal Facility

A major fuel distributor was planning to replace the existing low voltage Motor Control Center (MCC) and distribution equipment at their terminal due to age and failure concerns.  Superior Engineering (S/E) was asked to define the scope and provide detailed engineering for the project. The scope consisted of replacing the existing Motor Control Center (MCC01) and related power distribution equipment, installing a new MCC complete with foundation, new underground duct banks - encased in concrete, and electrical panel boards. S/E provided all engineering services for the Detailed Engineering Phase which included:

  1. A general layout for the best location of the new MCC.
  2. Updated existing single line drawings.
  3. New conduit routing plan drawing showing both the underground and above ground runs including:
    • New underground electrical raceway/conduit system that ran power from the local utility company to a properly sized and designed MCC.
    • New conductors for the underground conduit system that ran power from the service entrance to the new MCC and from the MCC to various electrical loads/feeds in the facility.
  4. New electrical equipment ground and facility ground loop for newly installed equipment.
  5. Construction Scope of Work package including:
    • Conduit and Cable Schedule
    • Bill of Material (BOM)
    • Annotated Demo Photos
    • Disposal Criteria for Demolished Equipment
    • Distribution Panel Schedule
  6. Design and specification of the new MCC and associated equipment.
