MD&A Turbine-Generator Repair Facility Addition – Project Update

Site electric and building underground work is progressing at MD&A in South St. Louis.  With such a small footprint, significant coordination has taken place to allow all the trades to meet schedule.  Thank you to all the trades and the design team for recognizing the proximity issues and keeping themselves and their coworkers safe.


President’s Message

Wow!  Has this year flown by!

As I begin my second year as President, I am thankful for so much and wanted to share a few thoughts as Schaeffer Electric continues to move forward.

We are now already two months in to our Fiscal Year 2013, and we’re off to a great start. Shortly, Schaeffer will begin work on a ‘spin cell’ which balances high speed turbines – one of only a few in the world. It’s unique to say the least, and we look forward to working with MD&A and Tarlton in building the facility. Vital projects for Mercy, Webster University, Elantas and others are ongoing.

Saint Louis University – Pius Library Renovations

Renovations were recently completed on the Saint Louis University – Pius Library.  Performed direct for Saint Louis University and in conjunction with their maintenance personnel along with personnel from ICS Construction, the project consisted of five floors of design assist power and lighting modifications.  Spline ceilings for all five floors were completely removed and replaced allowing for new lighting throughout.  In additional, all branch panels on the five floors were replaced along with a motor control center in the basement.  The entire project was completed in a five month schedule while the library was open to the public.

Metro Link – Light Rail Expansion Fiber Network

Schaeffer Electric performed all the low voltage work along seven miles of new track with ten new stations.  Work in the stations included electrical work supporting the low voltage systems. Wiring and device hookups were performed for the following systems: SCADA, voice, data, fire alarm, CCTV, radio antennas, and ticketing just to name a few. All the fiber optic cables were brought into each station spliced and connectorized. Active fiber splice cases were accessed with the new stations being spliced in on two hour time frames.
