The Davis WTP was originally constructed in 1952, with equal capacity expansions in 1963 and 1972. Although thePlant has undergone several process improvement projects over the years, much of the Plant's electrical system hasgenerally not been updated or rehabilitated since its original construction and have deteriorated due to age and wear.The existing Power Distribution System at the plant is unreliable and insufficient for the existing and future loads.From the Austin Energy service to the local area low voltage distribution systems, much of the electrical equipmentthroughout the plant has either only a single point of service, is undersized, and/or has exceeded its service life. Theproposed future loads (on-site Chlorine Generation and Ultra-Violet (UV) Disinfection) will cause the serviceequipment to be further overloaded. Additionally, the existing Main Substation equipment is located outdoors,resulting in significant weathering and corrosion. This project upgrades the electrical services to these process areasand replaces outdated equipment. Anticipated system improvements generally include new 12,470 volt Plant servicecables from Austin Energy; a new incoming 15-Kv substation within a building; conversion of in-plant distributionvoltage from 4160V to 12,470V; renovation of the chemical area switchgear/distribution; addition of 15-Kv dedicatedtransformers for the High, Medium and Low Service Pump Stations; new redundant 15-Kv distribution cables and ductbanks systems; renovating/upgrading the plant administration and training buildings distribution system; andrenovating the emergency power distribution system No additional specifications were given.
