Jones|Carter worked alongside Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District 2 to upgrade a pump station that serves more than 9,000 homes and businesses in the Sugar Land area. The J|C team designed the replacement of all electrical power distribution equipment and installed a motor control center that will accommodate a third pump as well as the future upsizing of the two existing pumps.
The project included designing upsized electrical service entrance equipment to meet 150 mph wind ratings. The existing diesel generator was upgraded to a larger diesel generator with a secondary natural gas generator.
The J|C team designed and programmed a generator optimization mode, which runs the generator on an “as needed” basis allowing maximum fuel conservation in the event of a prolonged power outage. Additionally, the J|C team designed a redundant backup power generation system with manual overrides in the event of automatic controls failure.
