Norwalk, Conn., March 11, 2010 – Emcor Group’s unit, Dynalectric, won installation contracts for electrical systems at the Riverside Energy Resource Center in Riverside, California.
Dynalectric San Diego and Dynalectric Los Angeles will be responsible for the installation, start-up and commissioning of all the electrical systems at the Riverside Energy Resource Center, built to address Riverside’s growing demand for electricity.
In 2004, the City of Riverside’s Public Utilities Department constructed RERC Units 1 and 2, a 96-MW power generating plant.
This new project will add two additional units (3 and 4), an additional 96 MW, to be constructed at the RERC site, and of the same size and configuration as Units 1 and 2. The power plant will consist of two natural gas turbine generators operating with an associated switchyard.
In addition to the traditional electrical scope of work, Dynalectric San Diego and Dynalectric Los Angeles will also be responsible for the installation of all systems, including the plant controls systems, as well as the installation of a lightning protection system, fire alarm system, security system, and tele/data and fiber optics systems. The project is scheduled for completion in October 2010.
