Magna IV Engineering was engaged as a sub-consultant to provide electrical, controls, and instrumentation design services for the new Drayton Valley Water Treatment Plant.
The plant contains GE water treatment system skids controlled by an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix PLC from a manned office. The plant has a 2000A 600V 3-phase electrical service with 100% emergency backup power. For energy savings the plant has also incorporated a 13.5kW solar panel system along with daylight harvesting (sunlight detection) and occupancy sensors to achieve energy savings. A pole-mounted lighting system was designed in the process areas to save maintenance cost, enabling access by ladder instead of requiring scaffolding. There are 3-350HP distribution pumps, with room for 2 more at 350HP, along with multiple motor loads in the 50-100HP range.
The entire water train system and building was designed to allow for future expansion to the East for up to 2 more water treatment process trains.
