Description: Davis WTP Power Distribution Upgrade 
Summary: The Davis WTP was originally constructed in 1952, with equal capacity expansions in 1963 and 1972. Although the Plant has undergone several process improvement projects over the years, much of the Plant's electrical system has generally 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 equipment throughout the plant has either only a single point of service, is undersized, and/or has exceeded its service life. The proposed future loads (on-site Chlorine Generation and Ultra-Violet (UV) Disinfection) will cause the service equipment 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 This project upgrades the electrical services to these process areas and replaces outdated equipment. Anticipated system improvements generally include new 12,470 volt Plant service cables from Austin Energy; a new incoming 15-Kv substation within a building; conversion of in-plant distribution voltage from 4160V to 12,470V; renovation of the chemical area switchgear/distribution; addition of 15-Kv dedicated transformers for the High, Medium and Low Service Pump Stations; new redundant 15-Kv distribution cables and duct banks systems; renovating/upgrading the plant administration and training buildings distribution system; and renovating the emergency power distribution system.
