The new power plant will be an engineered metal building with a concrete slab-on-grade foundation. The plant will re-use the four existing electronically controlled fuel-efficient generators. New switchgear will provide automatic paralleling and load control of the four generating units to maximize generation reliability and fuel efficiency. Critical grade silencers and sound insulated dampers will attenuate noise from the plant. The plant will be provided with a fire suppression system, and engine coolant, fuel, and lube oil piping. Upgrades to the existing heat recovery system include new pumps and heat exchangers at the power plant and end user buildings. An energy meter will be installed and new arctic pipe routed from the new plant to the existing arctic piping system.
