Water treatment MCC’s

Terberg Control Systems, one of CUBIC’s Dutch partners has within a tight time schedule supplied all necessary MCC’s to a water treatment plant built by Veolia in Iraq. 

The plant

The Shat el Basra project in Iraq is a natural gas power Plant consisting of 10 x gas generator power gensets with maximum output of 1250MW.

The project was launched by the Iraqi Minister of Electricity as part of a huge master plan aiming at adding 22,000 megawats of production capacity across Iraq. The plant is designed for base load and three shift operation. The intended operating regime will be base load, operating [8000 to 8150] hours per annum equal to a typical annual availability of more than 90%.

The plant is designed with black start capability. The main fuel will be the natural gas and back-up fuels with overall storage capability of 5 days. VWS (Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies) is the company entrusted with the turnkey execution of the water treatment plant of this site. The main function of the water treatment plant built by VWS is to create and provide: 

  • Demineralized water to gas turbines and for filling the closed cooling system
  • Service water to various consumptions like fire fighting and for site cleaning purposes
  • Portable water

The main challenge was the tight deadline for preparation and the time needed to reach a common agreement with VWS in terms of MCC switchboards’ design. A key factor in making this possible was 3D drawings of every MCC panel. This standard design approach by Terberg, effectively reduces engineering time as all details of the MCC design can be checked and agreed by the customer prior to production. Combined with the CUBIC 1 week stock supply to Terberg, it was possible to meet the deadline and the project was done within only 3 months, including all engineering and production related to the project.

 

Another challenge was to make sure the panel was designed in a way that made every cable easy to install. Via labeling of all components and connection boxes, Terberg made it easy for the onsite crew to correctlyinstall the switthcboard very quickly.

The switchboards

The flexibility of the CUBIC system enabled Terberg ABB to make use of any components desired by the costumer. For the main components Terberg applied ABB components and supplied 3 MCC swithcboards with in total 300 motor groups. The panels have the form 4 type 6 specification. Due to the fact that the site is a water treatment plant, Veolia needed tinned busbars and Terberg ABB chose CUBIC standard tinned copper busbars, as the optimal solution. The busbars have a 2500A rating built for Icw=50 kA/1sec. In total Terberg has installed 300 MD Multi Drawers in various sizes  ranging from 1.5×1 modules up to 2×3 modules.
