Project Highlights

Cable Contractor Lead Services - FPL


We assemble crew job package and give to crew GF, order material, staking if needed, ensure any environmental requirements are met, obtain all necessary switching orders for the crews, monitor progress of project to ensure due date will be met, set up any customer outages needed, remove any barriers that may hinder crew's progress, address customer complaints / inquires, and obtain all necessary switching orders for the crews. Perform crew safety visits at a minimum of 3/week, approve any additional work the crews request beyond what is engineered on job print, ensure post project restoration work is completed satisfactorily, attend weekly project status / work load conference calls, and work with FPL PL in completing job in WMS and assist in close out and payment process. Some Cable Services CPL's also do AMS data updates and run reports from WMS for the FPL manager and are also available for storm restoration assistance.




Condition Assessment Contractor Lead Services - FPL


This involves the visual detailed foot assessment survey on overhead distribution feeders. The purpose of the assessment is to locate and identify any potential problems with overhead equipment that could affect the reliability of the feeder. Each feeder is surveyed using a visual criteria that identifies disconnect switches that have Damage, Corrosion, are Misaligned, or have Flashed Insulator(s), Broken Insulator(s), Missing or Blown Arrestor Stations and are usually in an open or closed position. We perform a thorough and complete visual inspection designed to detect any and all potential problems that can affect the reliability of the line. A thorough and complete foot assessment involves a stop at the location of the equipment being inspected to ensure all potential problems are identified.




Crandon Park and Trividia - FPL


It was requested by FPL for ECF to provide engineering services for a 750kW UPS (uninterruptable Power Supply) optional stand-by unit for the Crandon Park tennis center and the Trividia Health Facility. The UPS was used to mitigate voltage sags, surges and momentarys which occur when both customers lost power and had to be switched over to an emergency feeder. In order to achieve this, the UPS was engineered in series with the customers in- coming utility service after the service meter. Since this was after a service meter installation, ECF produced signed and sealed engineered drawings which were used to secure a permit from the building department in order to start construction. The clients criteria for the installation of the UPS was that it had to be removable from the customers existing utility service, so it could be relocated and used at another site. ECF was challenged with not only this criteria but also making sure the customer maintained utility power while the UPS was being removed. ECF was able to achieve this, leading to the project completed successfully and on schedule.




Hardening Contractor Lead Services - FPL


We perform pre-project constructability meetings with project designer and GF. Receive work package from FPL admin tech – ensure all necessary paper work in included and attend project pre-construction meetings. We order material, staking if needed, ensure any environmental requirements are met, ensure tree trimming is completed if needed and obtain all necessary switching orders for the crews. Monitoring progress of project to ensure due date will be met, set up any customer outages needed, remove any barriers that may hinder crews progress, address customer complaints / inquires, and perform crew safety visits at a minimum of 3/week. We approve any additional work the crews' request beyond what is engineered on job print, ensure post project restoration work is completed satisfactorily, and attend weekly project status / work load conference calls. We work with FPL PL in completing job in WMS and assist in close out and payment process and are available for storm restoration assistance.




Install Automatic Field Switching SSN - FPL


Installed Antenna, SSN ebridge Radio, Substation Communication Platform and other site upgrades to support FPL distribution System automatic Field Switching installation.




Smart Grid FL - IED Tech Support - FPL


Project work involved the configuration (programming field devices) of radios that are paired with intelligent electrical devices (IEDs), program management and technical troubleshooting of Automated Feeder Switches (AFS) and their associated communications, as well as process and application improvement support.




Smart Grid Devices FCI 2017 Deployment - FPL


The Remediation Team is responsible for identifying The malfunction of smart devices and trouble shoot diagnosis and resolutions of any issue in collaboration with the other group part of the Reliability program. The Forensic Storm Team prepares to respond after natural event (Storm/ Hurricane/ Tornado/ Flooding) to track and diagnosis any effect on the functionality of the smart grid devices. We also respond efficiently to bring back up service from unit damage cause by natural events. We patrol any part of the Distribution or Transmission lines that are part of the FPL Electric Grid. The Field Service Group Smart Devices troubleshoot field service for the Smart Devices in some of their components to design and maintain the reliability of the communications of the devices. This is done to visualize through multiple applications the signals from the system and data analysis is collected to increase the reliability of the electric system. This is all done with the goal to minimize the time response under emergencies as well as normal service interruptions for customers, and providing data accuracy and geography data to respond more efficiently.




City of Lake Worth Beach Electric Systems - CLW, FL


Project work involved the configuration (programming field devices) of radios that are paired with intelligent electrical devices (IEDs), program management and technical troubleshooting of Automated Feeder Switches (AFS) and their associated communications, as well as process and application improvement support.
