General building/engine ventilation was designed to provide spare conditioning. A new 20,000 gallon above ground diesel fuel storage tank with associated piping and day tanks were designed. This project was completed while maintaining operation of 2 adjacent generators. North Branch Municipal Utilities, North Branch, MN
The existing facility was modified to fit the proposed new generator installation. Space for this project was a premium. Project deadlines were critical as the utility is contracted with Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (SMMPA) to provide peak shaving/generation.
