LORD, via its sub contractor for design, performed all the electrical design according to the latest edition NFPA Standards/ NEC Code. LORD verified all electrical loads to sizes correctly to design and provide 100% power back up to SICU, MICU, and CCU.
LORD provided sufficient, qualified, trained and skilled personnel, registered and experienced professional electrical engineer supervision, all necessary construction equipment, infrared survey, NETA and PREPA required testing services, certified test reports, protective equipment, PPE, support, and construction meeting assistance to comply with SOW requirements.
The joint venture between SDPM JFM Consturcciones and LORD, was also responsible for installing a new 17 MVA Substation to replace existing Substation.
