Kupper Engineering, Inc. (KEI) provided engineering services to identify, design, and implement capital improvements for Spring Creek Towers, a Brooklyn, NY-based housing development. This involved improvements to the housing community’s power generation and distribution in order to provide its residents with more reliable, sustainable, and efficient energy.
Our project involvement included the following:
- Procurement of new 5kV switchgear and two 4 MW backup diesel generators
- Building and power plant mechanical improvements
- New centralized SCADA system design and configuration
- Master planning analysis and engineering construction assistance
The total service package included all controls as well as generator paralleling with existing turbines and mechanical systems (for diesel and natural gas), and cut-over sequences and assistance. The switchgear is designed to future connections to ConEdison.
