Construction of New Pumphouse

A new pumphouse was recently constructed to provide more snowmaking abilities for Gore Mountain.  The pumphouse will provide water to over 300 automated snowmaking guns that will reduce energy costs while increasing the snowmaking capabilities.

 

JSE performed MEP services for this new pumphouse.  Some of the major design elements included power for (9) 500 HP snowmaking machines which required (3) separate 2.5 MVA electric services, combination of delta and wye electrical services, Post Glover zigzag impedance grounding systems and a combination of 500 HP VFD’s and Solid State soft starter equipment.
