Projects


Hydro-Québec Manic 5 Hydro-Québec Manic 5 Introduction:

As part of Hydro-Québec’s Manic 5 drinking water booster station project, we designed, built, programmed and installed two panels. The first was a control panel with a PLC, while the other was a starter panel incorporating variable frequency drives.

Application:

The PLC installed in the control panel handles system control. The variable frequency drives manage the pumps while ensuring precise flow modulation of the plant’s drinking water booster system.

Main Features:

Control panel:

  • Painted stainless steel cabinet and accessories (NEMA 4X)
  • GE Intelligent Platform Series 90 PLC
  • 24 VDC power source
  • Touch screen serving as display and control panel
  • LED operating status indicators

Starter panel:

  • Painted stainless steel cabinet and accessories (NEMA 4X)
  • Forced air ventilation system
  • Schneider variable frequency drives and protection (ATV61)
  • LED operating status indicators for each pump
  • Manual and automatic pump control selectors
Certification and Other Information:
  • CSA C22.2 #14-05 certification (industrial control equipment)
  • Meets or exceeds H-Q #SN-29.3a standards (equipment housing)
  • Meets or exceeds H-Q #SN-61.3a standards (basic requirements for control panels)

Laval Lime Treatment Laval Lime Treatment Introduction:

As part of the lime feeding system upgrade at the City of Laval’s Chomedey and Pont-Viau water treatment plants, we designed and built three control panels, all of which are hybrid control panels combining automation and power.

Application:

The programmable logic controller is dedicated to overall management of the lime feed system. Direct drive starters and variable frequency drives ensure proper operation of the rotary valves, vibrators and screw feeding systems. The system produces the exact amount of lime slurry to be added to the drinking water ensuring that it is suitable for treatment.

Main Features:

Control panel:

  • Stainless steel cabinet and accessories (NEMA 12)
  • Touch-operated industrial computer
  • Schneider PLC (M340)
  • Schneider variable frequency drives and protection (ATV61)
  • Set of direct drive starters
  • Emergency power source (UPS)
  • Class 1 Division 1 integrated protection relays
Certification and Other Information:
  • CSA C22.2 #14-05 certification (industrial control equipment)

City of Deux-Montagnes City of Deux-Montagnes Introduction:

As part of Deux-Montagnes WTP upgrade, we designed, built and installed four high-pressure pump starters, all of which are controlled with variable frequency drives.

Application:

Automation of the system is provided by an external programmable logic controller. The starters include variable frequency drives that independently manage four pumps, enabling precise flow control of the city’s drinking water distribution system.

Main Features:

Control panel:

  • Painted steel cabinet and accessories (NEMA 12 modular assembly)
  • Forced air ventilation system
  • 125HP Schneider variable frequency drives and protection (ATV61)
  • Inductance and input/output filter set
  • LED operating status indicators for each pump
  • Manual and automatic pump control selectors
  • 24 VDC power source
Certification and Other Information:
  • CSA C22.2 #14-05 certification (industrial control equipment)
