Time Warner’s regional electrical facilities needed major upgrading to accommodate business growth and assure uninterrupted quality service to customers. The project was deemed ‘mission critical’—success being vital to the company’s goals and objectives in the region.
Retrofitting the existing structure with electrical upgrades and additions posed unique challenges. Time Warner awarded O’Connell a $2.5 million contract for electrical work to provide standby emergency power generation and an uninterruptible power supply system (UPS).
Equipment installations included: three 750 kw generators (with provision for additional generators), five generator control cabinets, a 400kVA UPS system with control cabinet (with provision for three additional systems), additional distribution panels, a thousand lineal feet of 225 amp busway, power logic switching and metering and a paralleling switchgear package.
Additionally, O’Connell contracted to render start-up and commissioning services on the new and upgraded systems. The new work was integrated into Time Warner operations without interruption to customer service and backed by a 3 year warranty.
