Project Details

TAI provided engineering and construction services to install a Buhler Blending Unit Electrical unit to increase their manufacturing ability. TAI provided design documents for sizing and indicating layout of electrical and controls raceway and wiring from MCP panels to motors and process devices located at a new facility that was under construction. All conductors originated in the control room located on the 3rd  level of the new process building structure for the Blending Unit. The seven panels located in the control room were labeled and each of these panels were installed and located per engineered drawings. Feeders were provided, installed and tested to three (3) of the MCP Panels. Additional feeders for the remaining MCP’s and the Control Panel were provided, installed and tested. Engineered drawings for the installation of these feeders were provided by TAI. Also installed were motor control panels, power feeds, conduit and wire, field disconnect switches for all motors, field termination boxes, emergency stop pushbutton stations. TAI grounded and bonded all major electrical equipment per National Electrical Code Requirements and dressed, labeled and terminated all wiring. Engineering, design, and construction were completed with site construction management and a construction maintenance schedule.
