LOCATION: Orleans Parish, LA
APPROXIMATE CONTRACT VALUE: $26,506,000
OWNER: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
Scope of Work
This new pump station was constructed to include two 300 cubic feet per second vertical electrical motor driven pumps with a 2.5 MW diesel driven generator supplying 4160V of standby power. To construct the station, Cycle teamed with the M.R. Pittman Group (MRPG) to capitalize on their immense experience in pump station construction. The Cycle/MRPG team was able to deliver a state of the art and architecturally pleasing pump station for our clients.
The project scope included the civil construction elements of demolition and replacement of heavily reinforced concrete structures, deep cofferdams, piling, subsurface utilities, concrete and asphalt paving. Mechanical features include radiators, air compressors, diesel storage tanks, fans, louvers and silencers, and other associated work. Finally, the architectural features included a blast proof concrete shell consisting of an interior control room complete with restroom facilities, a brick façade to match the adjacent station and a metal roof to complete the look.
