Apollo Pump Station Improvements

Client: North Texas Municipal Water District

Location: North Texas

Cost: Less than $5M

Service Category: Electrical Engineering; Instrumentation & Controls Engineering; SCADA & Automation

The Apollo Pump Station had one power source from the utility company. To have power redundancy at its facilities, Mbroh designed a new emergency backup generator to provide the pump station with a redundant second power source. Electrical design for this project included the design of a new 2500 kW 5 kV generator, a new generator main breaker section for the existing 5 kV main switchgear, a new automatic transfer system, a new medium-voltage variable frequency drive for an existing medium-voltage pump motor, replacement of existing 100 hp 480 V pump motors, grounding, detailed conduit and wiring layout design.
Mbroh also provided I&C design and SCADA monitoring and control to support a new generator, upgrades to the electrical equipment, and pump improvements so that the pump station could operate efficiently. The design included a PLC upgrade, modification, and control narrative for automating the pump station using new VFDs instead of existing across-the-line pumps.
