Project 3945 packaged with Burns & McDonnell, who was selected to provide preliminary and detailed engineering and project management services for a major emission control upgrade at Minnesota Power’s Boswell Unit 3, located in Cohasset, Minnesota, US. Boswell Unit 3 is a 350-MW pulverized-coal power facility that was commissioned for service in 1973. This project included 4 runs of 5kV/3000A bus duct, 2 runs of 5kV/6000A bus duct, 2 runs of 15kV/2000A bus duct, and 2 runs of 600V/2500A bus duct which power the electrical room and transformer areas.
This project was shipped June 2009 and is to be fully operational by the end of 2009.
In addition to our bus duct, we provided structural supports and certified seismic calculations.
