SCA Peaker Project

CLIENT: Sacramento Municipal Utility District

For the SCA Peaker Project, IEC served in several capacities throughout all phases of the project, including conceptual engineering, project management, field engineering, start-up, and testing. Completed in April 2001, the project included one (1) zero-timed LM6000 PC unit with the Mark VI control system, SCR and CO catalyst, aqueous ammonia system, 2000-ton centrifugal chiller, and Deltak exhaust duct. IEC worked diligently to distribute bid packages to achieve a critical project requirement imposed by the California Energy Commission. In addition, IEC proposed ideas for compressing the schedule by paralleling activities to significantly reduce the project duration to ensure the plant was operational prior to the summer peak. The company was also responsible for the complete interconnect design with the SMUD switchyard/grid for the new 230kV switchyard and power plant.  IEC worked closely with SMUD staff to develop, design, procure, and build this project in a period of 10 months. The project was considered a success among SMUD staff and the Board of Directors.
