Coquitlam Compressor Station

Power Distribution Protection & Controls

This project consisted of all electrical and instrumentation work required to install a new Solar gas driven turbine compressor (output 10,000 HP), at Centra Gas Westwood Plateau Compressor Station.

Work included installation of a new MCC, new Unit Control Panel, installation of all building electrical and safety system instrumentation for the new compressor structure, all process instrumentation and all power and control wiring to the new compressor skid. All wiring in the compressor structure is suitable for a Class 1 Division 1 hazardous location and installed to Westcoast Energy s stringent quality control.

Work also included a major plant shutdown to tie in a relocated sending barrel, major alterations to the fuel gas plant as well as extensive control modifications to the Station Control Panel while maintaining Plant operation and thus gas service to Vancouver Island.

Work was completed to a demanding schedule set by the customer, at a constrained site and under constant scrutiny of Westcoast Energy inspectors.
