Alvarado WTP Ozone Expansion | La Mesa, California
Size: 238,000 SF
Contractor/Operator: Archer Western
Owner: City of San Diego
Architect/Engineer: Malcolm Pirnie
The ozone system will allow the Alvarado WTP to expand its daily output of 120 MGD to 200 MGD of clean drinking water. The ozone system technology takes liquid oxygen (O2) and converts it to gaseous ozone (O3) which is then diffused into the water for a controlled time to allow the gaseous ozone to disinfect the water.
Haynes Power Plant Units 5 & 6 | Long Beach, California
Size: (6) 100mw combustion turbines
Contractor/Operator: Kiewit Power
Owner: Los Angeles Dept. of Water & Power
Architect/Engineer: Kiewit Power/Worley Parsons
The Haynes 5 & 6 Repowering Project consists of the construction of six 100-megawatt natural gas-fired combustion turbines (Units 11-16). All six new generation units have the ability to start simultaneously and deliver a combined 600-megawatts to the grid within 10 minutes. Neal’s scope of work included extensive trenching with large underground duct banks, manholes, pull boxes, high voltage cable pulling and terminations, setting substation and low voltage switchgear and extensive testing and commissioning. This project had continual milestones and target dates that were aggressive.
Los Coches Pump Station | La Mesa, California
Size: 64 MGD
Contractor/Operator: Western Summit Constructors
Owner: Helix Water District
Construction of a new 64 MGD Pump Station with five 450 HP VFD driven pumps to replace an existing Pump Station at the R. M. Levy Water Treatment Plant for the Helix Water District.
San Vicente Pump Facilities | Lakeside, California
Contractor: Kiewit Pacific
Owner: San Diego County Water Authority
Engineer: Black & Veatch
The San Vicente Pumping Facilities are part of the Emergency Storage Project, a system of reservoirs, interconnected pipelines, and pumping stations designed to make water available to the San Diego region in the event of an interruption in imported water deliveries. Water is pumped to the top of the hill from the reservoir and then flow by gravity through the San Vicente Pipeline tunnel to connect to the Second Aqueduct. The facility has the ability to pump approximately 300 million gallons of water a day. It will include three pumps that each has 7,000-horse power capacity.
South Bay International Wastewater Treatment Plant | Tijuana River Valley Mexico/USA
Size: 25 Million Gallons Per Day
Contractor/Operator: PCL Construction
Owner: International Boundary and Water Commission
Engineer: S&B Infrastructure, LTD
Electrical Scope: 12KV Switchgear & Distribution, Underground Duct Banks, 480V Busduct, Mobile Standby Generator, Instrumentation & Controls, Power Capacitors, UPS Emergency Backup, Power System Studies, Grounding System
Project construction was almost completely stopped due to deficient contract specifications and drawings. Neal Electrical stepped in and became part of the design team working with PCL Construction, and Malcolm Pirnie to “fill in” gaps in the design using our in-house design department along with our experience project manager to avoid construction delays. It also became necessary for the IBWC to accelerate the schedule to recover more than 4 months of lost time in the project schedule due to these design issues when they were not granted a time extension by the Regional Board to the January 2011 requirement to provide secondary effluent up to the Clean Water Act standards. Through working extended hours and Saturday’s for a period of 9 months with PCL Construction, Neal Electric met or exceeded every milestone and system startup required in order to deliver the project on time to meet the court ordered mandate for secondary effluent up to the standards of the Clean Water Act.
Twin Oaks Valley Water Treatment Plant | San Marcos, California
Size: 100 Million Gallons per Day
Contractor/Operator: CH2M Hill
Owner: San Diego County Water Authority
Architect/Engineer: CH2M Hill
Electrical Scope: Design Build, 3D Modeling, Instrumentation and Control, 12K Substation, Pad Mounted Transformers, Underground Duct Banks, (3) Emergency Generators, Fiber Optic Cabling, Grounding System
The Twin Oaks Valley Water Treatment Plant is the largest submerged membrane water treatment plant in the world to use membrane ultra filtration technology to purify incoming raw water. At optimum capacity the facility will deliver 100-million gallons of treated water to San Diego County a day, enough to serve up to 220,000 households The facility contains 23 separate structures including two 8.5 million gallon reservoirs along with clear wells, chemical storage and feed facilities, administrative and operations facilities, sludge handling and processing facilities, backup power facilities, roads and parking areas.
Area Manager | Kiewit Pacific Co.
“The quality of the electrical work by the field electricians was excellent and their ‘can do’ attitude in the face of what sometimes seemed to be insurmountable problems is to be commended. I would highly recommend any company to team up with Neal Electric and look forward to working with you again very soon.”
Randall S. Denton
P.E., Senior Electrical Engineer | CH2M Hill
“Neal Electric’s design package for the building facilities and site-wide duct banks met our expectations for an electrical contractor in a design-build project. Neal Electric had the design talent and CAD capabilities to create a thoroughly designed electrical, I&C and special systems integrated package.”
Senior Project Manager | Archer Western Contractors, Ltd.
“The outstanding professionalism demonstrated by all of Neal’s employees is one of the main reasons for this projects success, and for that Archer Western is extremely thankful. In addition to fulfilling all of the contract requirements, we have completed over 140 changes within this duration and a large portion of these were performed by Neal Electric.”
