The electrical infrastructure includes dual 44kV feeders from separate utility sources for redundancy, outdoor 44kV primary switchgear, two 44kV power transformers to step down to 4160V, an indoor 4160V switchgear lineup complete with generator master control panel for automating the 1250kW standby generator systems and six medium voltage variable frequency driven motor starters.

The complete instrumentation and controls and network design was completed in accordance with the Region’s Process Automation and Instrumentation Design Standards (PAIDS). The facility included a dedicated instrument control panel (ICP) for plant process monitoring and control, communication control panel (CCP) for facility network communications, wide area network (WAN) panel for connection to the Region’s network, dedicated ICP for the switchgear and generation control and a dedicated ICP for a new on-site bulk water system.

Eramosa was also responsible for the ControlLogix PLC and InTouch HMI programming, PCN development and integration with the West Brampton Pumping Station and North Brampton Pumping Station control strategies. The project was completed in 2019.

We are very pleased to share that the Region of Peel’s Alloa Reservoir and Pumping Station Project has been selected as the Ontario Public Works Association’s (OPWA) 2020 Project of the Year for Environmental Projects between $10-$50 Million.
