PROJECT SUMMARY:

Dynamo was commissioned to evaluate the electrical distribution system at Viterra’s Thunder Bay grain handling facility and to make recommendations in order to upgrade it to a “Utility Grade” standard. One of the main recommendations from this study was to change out the existing medium voltage fused disconnect style switchgear with breaker switchgear.


A second scope of work was awarded to provide 70% engineering design for the new switchgear and for other recommendations arising from the study. This work has concluded and a demolition construction single line and layouts for the project are complete.


Currently we have an RFP out to vendors requesting proposals for two (2) new medium voltage switchgear line ups. Once we select a vendor and have a completed drawing review, we will incorporate the vendor’s drawings into the site drawings to create an integrated IFC set. A construction work package will then be developed to be part of an RFP package for contractors to respond to.


We will be managing the site construction work and will commission the new switchgear. The expected installations, based on site outage tolerance and switchgear delivery times, will be in August 2025 and August 2026.
