Project Spotlight: Replacing Aging Bus Duct Equipment Offers Better Reliability & Increased Performance

By March 31, 2022 Blog
In this week’s Project Spotlight, we look back at a plant that hired EBI to replace their aging non-segregated bus duct system with a compressed IPB design, which is a miniature version of the standard Isolated Phase Bus. This bus design is a great alternative when space is limited and has the same degree of reliability and safety as its larger counterpart. It is also designed for both AC or DC excitation leads. EBI’s Scope Activities Included:
• Removal of the existing non-segregated bus on the inside of the building from the generator to the wall penetration
• Installation of the new bus, support steel, adapter flanges, generator and termination cabinets
• Installation and alignment of new tap bus sections
• Specialty welding of the conductors, enclosures, and shorting plates
• Final DC Hi Pot test
• Supply and installation of new flex link connectors
