Amped I is currently in the process of replacing antiquated metering equipment with new digital technology at a site in Oklahoma
Along with the replacement of old RTU systems we are installing a new fiber communication system that can communicate with the newly installed digital metering equipment to provide load information.This installation includes new RTU systems, new Bitronic Meters, and new fiber communication cabinets. One challenge faced with this project was that there were missing drawings at the station for equipment that had been previously installed. We created new drawings and based connections on photos from our field walk-down and other related equipment.
Our fire protection division, Fire & Risk Alliance, is currently working on a review and certification of a Tank Farm Fire Suppression System. The client has been asked to design and install foam fire suppression systems for new oil storage tanks in the state of Massachusetts. The authority holding jurisdiction requested that the client’s design be reviewed and certified by a Registered Professional Fire Protection Engineer in the state of Massachusetts.
The fire group assisted the client by reviewing the completed fire protection designs and hydraulic calculations by comparing them to local and national standards and codes.
