As recent headlines out of Japan demonstrate, hav- ing reliable backup electri-
cal power can mean the difference
between safe operation and disaster
in the event of a utility power outage.
Lectrus, a Chattanooga, Tenn.-based electrical systems integrator,
and designer and manufacturer of
custom metal enclosures, has completed work on an enclosure for use
at Cooper Nuclear Station (CNS).
Located in Brownville, Neb., CNS is
the Nebraska Public Power District’s
(NPPD) largest single-unit electrical
power generation station.
According to Russ Wenzl, senior
project manager, CNS, the project
originated when NPPD commis-
sioned Interstate Power Systems, the
Bloomington, Minn.-based provider of
support and services for power gen-
eration and other industries, to build
a two-piece sound-attenuated metal
enclosure for a backup diesel gen-set,
switchgear and associated electrical
equipment. From there, Interstate con-
tracted Lectrus’ South Dakota opera-
tion — which it had worked with in the
past — to handle the project.
