- LOCATION Northern Manitoba
- COMPLETION DATE 2018
- PROJECT VALUE $63.6 Million
Scope of Work : Supply and Install Building Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, Process Piping, Mechanical, Plumbing, Controls, Electrical work
Actual Location : Riel Converter Station Winnipeg Manitoba, Keewatinohk Converter Station 725 km north of Winnipeg and 79 kms Northeast of Gillam Manitoba
In 2016, 2017, 2018 DMS Industrial Constructors provided base building infrastructure installation for Mechanical, Piping, Heat Tracing, Insulation, HVAC, Electrical Distribution, DC System for Distribution Protection and Control, Lighting and Life Safety System’s for Manitoba Hydro’s New Riel and Keewatinohk Convertor Station Bipole III Transmission Reliability Project.
Part of the Bipole III transmission project that links power generated from the lower Nelson River area and delivers to the distribution system in Southern Manitoba. The Riel and Keewatinohk stations convert high voltage alternating current to high voltage direct current and vice versa. Converting to HVDC allows much lower electrical losses over vast distances than standard AC transmission. DMS held a critical role in the construction of both converter stations electrical and mechanical systems. This was a design build project DMS worked closely with the design team to help finalize the design and execute their scope of work.
Full scope of work included design assist development of 3D model, quality control, Fire Alarm Vesda System, Building Management system, Lightning Protection, Grounding / Shielding, Construction temporary lighting/ power/ heating, Interior Telecommunication, Interior lighting /power Commissioning, Security System, install of mechanical equipment, Piping and ducting insulation and cladding, Chilled water system, Glycol Cooling System, Valve Cooling system, Hydro Testing, permits.
