Replace Main Generator- Fort Meade, SD

This project consisted of replacing the main generator that powers the entire hospital in the event of a power outage.  The roof on the enclosure  was removed.  The engine and alternator were craned out the top of the enclosure.  The motor was shipped to Wyoming to be rebuilt – water had entered the motor through the muffler and rusted some of the cylinders.  The motor and alternator were then shipped to Minnesota to then be mated with the new alternator end that was of a higher voltage, 12470V.  The unit was then shipped back and craned into place.  The unit was then commissioned in order for the system to work with the VA’s computer reporting system.
