Shasta Water Pump Station

Eugene Water and Electric Board (EWEB)’s Shasta 1150 Pump Station consists of six new pumps controlled via Variable Frequency Drives (VFD), new switchgear and motor control center with integrated Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and Human Machine Interface (HMI), automatic and manual transfer switches, transformer and distribution panel with communication via Ethernet connection.

Elcon designed the control system interfacing the PLC with pressure, flow and temperature transmitters for pump control and SCADA functions. Elcon designed a new standby diesel-engine generator and automatic transfer switch. In addition, to the new engine-generator set we also designed a connection using Posi-Lok connectors and kirk-keyed breakers for connection of a trailer mounted portable generator. Elcon also performed all calculations, developed a construction cost estimate, and provided assistance during the construction phase of the project by answering RFIs and submittal reviews.
