HPI Awarded Controls Upgrade Project for the Ocean County Utility Authority, NJ
HOUSTON (August 7, 2017) – HPI announced today that it has been awarded a contract to complete the controls upgrades for six Waukesha cogeneration enginator units at two Ocean County Utility Authority (OCUA) water treatment facilities.
The completion of this project will enable OCUA to fully automate their Waukesha engines and greatly improve their system diagnostics, functionality and ease of operation. This control upgrade will also allow OCUA to add these power generating systems into their plant DCS in the future, allowing them to control the entire plant from a central location.
Scheduled to begin in May 2017, the project is estimated to be completed by March 2018.
This marks another high profile project awarded to HPI, which recently received contracts to complete a turbine controls upgrade for one of the world’s largest mining companies and an LNG controls upgrade project for an energy company in Iowa.
