We’re seeking interested firms for a power plant
and sitewide electrical infrastructure construction project.
An estimated value of $100-250 million.
Interested firms should have:
A NATIONAL FOOTPRINT
AN ESTABLISHED PRESENCE IN COLORADO
DD 254 SECURITY CLEARANCE
PROVEN SUCCESS WITH SIMILAR PROJECTS
Construction of an electrical infrastructure master plan in Denver, CO metro area. This project involves:
ADDITION OF 15 MW GENERATION POWERHOUSE
The new powerhouse adds 15 MW of prime power capacity by utilizing ten 2.5 MW Tier IV-certified generators. The new generators are grouped into blocks of two to make a virtual generator block of 5MW. These generator blocks are then connected in a looped ring to provide operational flexibility while reducing the number of components and systems, each of which is a point of failure.
Construction includes an expansion to fuel unloading and storage facilities to support onsite storage requirements for the expanded powerhouse. All systems in the powerhouse, including auxiliary systems and emissions controls, are designed to provide concurrent maintainability.
OVERHAUL OF EXISTING 10 MW POWER PLANT
The plant expansion includes a complete overhaul of the campus medium voltage system, allowing the single new powerhouse to supply all of the loads onsite. The design employs phased construction techniques to maintain operations during completion of the generation plant expansion and infrastructure improvements.
FULL ELECTRICAL INFRASTRUCTURE CONTROLS SYSTEM UPGRADE
The design includes a full site electrical infrastructure controls system upgrade. The controls upgrade incorporates the new plant and existing infrastructure into a single seamless control system. The new controls system will allow for sequential start and load sharing at the generation plant, as well as the ability to monitor loads and shed.
ELECTRICAL AND COMMUNICATIONS INFRASTRUCTURE UPGRADE
The electrical and communications infrastructure portion of this project includes new and existing duct banks that, along with power distribution centers, provide a redundant power distribution and communication system. This system relocates several key pieces of switchgear to provide additional space inside existing facilities. All work conforms to the requirements and cyber security standards of UFC 4-010-06, including peer-to-peer high-speed electrical protection systems.
