25kV Switchgear Upgrade, Red Deer College

25kV Switchgear Upgrade, Red Deer College


Magna IV Engineering was hired on a turn-key basis to retro-fill the 25kV main switchgear at the Red Deer College with new Cutler Hammer Breakers. A total of 9 cells were modified to accept the new vacuum type breakers. The existing electromechanical protection relays were replaced with Multilin 750 and 735. A remote mimic panel was installed for the operation of the breakers.

In order to maintain power to the college, the loop system was utilized and the entire distribution system was fed from one side of the switchgear while working on the other side (half of the switchgear).

Magna IV Engineering did the design, procured equipment, completed onsite construction and commissioning before start-up.
