Laser Spine Institute

Schaeffer Electric recently completed the Laser Spine Institute in Creve Coeur, Missouri.  This fast paced project was performed in partnership with Precise Construction.  With the goal of renovating an existing 30,000 square foot space from an existing medical office to a surgical center in 6 months, close coordination and teamwork were imperative.  By the completion of the project, 3 operating room suites, 28 PACU/exam rooms, an MRI, and a Radiology room were ready for use, not to mention the required offices, waiting rooms, and lounge.  From an electrical point of view, the project consisted of completely new lighting, receptacles, fire alarm, normal power distribution, nurse call, voice/data and an emergency distribution system that consisted of 7 transfer switches and a 500 KW generator .  Congratulations to the entire team for a successful project and to the Laser Spine Institute on their beautifully renovated building.

Mechanical Dynamics & Analysis, Ltd. – St. Louis, MO

Work was recently completed on the first High-Speed Balance Facility in the St. Louis area, for power generating equipment, at Mechanical Dynamics & Analysis (MD&A). The facility was designed to be the one of the most modern balance facilities for power turbines in the United States with the ability to balance both steam and gas turbines as well as generator fields.  The project team was lead by Tarlton Corporation and included critical team members Corrigan Company for the mechanical work and Schaeffer Electric Company for the electrical work.  Key portions of work for Schaeffer included variable frequency drives and power for 8000 hp and 3000 hp motors, building addition, new Ameren 14 MVA substation, 15KV customer switchgear, (5) 15KV transformers, cooling tower, (3) UPS systems, extensive process control, vacuum penetrations, along with general lighting and power.  Schaeffer could not be more pleased with the team atmosphere throughout this project promoted by Tarlton and MD&A.  It took a strong collective effort to complete the project in the timeline required and it was exciting to be a part of that effort.

Kirkwood Public Works Generator

Schaeffer Electric recently completed the Kirkwood Public Works Generator project. This was a 150KW single phase generator with a new 2000 amp Automatic Transfer Switch and Service Entrance Switch. The goal of this project was to back up one of the two services for the building allowing the Public Works department to function during an emergency. This project took place over 60 days with one shutdown for a single day to tie in the new generator. Thank you to all the personnel at the Kirkwood Public Works building for helping us make this a successful project. We look forward to many more projects with the City of Kirkwood.
