Starting in July 2012, Mass. Electricn Construction Co. (MEC) crews replaced three (3) underground 34.5kV XLPE cable circuits, connecting three substations in Portland, Maine. All work took place in the Old Bay neighborhood of Portland, an active area with significant business and tourist traffic.
Since the 1990’s, MEC has had an ongoing maintenance/construction T&M contract supporting Genzyme’s growth. MEC, as a subcontractor to Turner Construction, worked on the construction of the 110,000 square foot expansion to the Allston, Massachusetts facility.
In October 1998, Mass Electric Construction Co. formed a joint venture with Garnet Electrical Co. of Florence, AL to perform the electrical work at the 1.7 million sq. ft. Delta IV Rocket Facility. In less than nineteen months, the site was transformed from farmland into a facility capable of mass producing forty rockets per year.
Work is underway in the upgrade the Homer City Power Plant in Homer City, Pennsylvania. The plant has stood above the city for over 43 years, and the 1,884-megawatt plant generates enough power for 2 million homes. In order to meet new federal clean air standards set for 2014, new scrubbers are being added to the chimneys to cut down on air pollution. Currently, Homer City Power Plant is labeled as one of the dirtiest power plants in the country; it will be one of the cleanest after the upgrades.
Mass. Electric Construction Co. (MEC) began work on a 2.1MW solar project in West Greenwich, Rhode Island in April 2013. This was the first solar project installation completed by MEC during the winter, and snow and ice were a major concern when it came to safety. Weather also played a major factor in how much trench could be open at one time, because snow could melt in the trench and freeze any installed conduit. Correct ordering of materials and scheduling crews were instrumental in the completion of this project on time.
Mass. Electric Construction Co. (MEC) crews installed a 2.6MW ground mounted solar photovoltaic system in Northbridge, MA, on a site previously used for farmland. Working as a subcontractor to Gehrlicher Solar America Corp., MEC installed a total of 9,064 solar modules.
Mass. Electric Construction Co. (MEC) completed the 80,000 square foot tenant fit-up of the Children’s Hospital of Boston (CHB) lab research facility at the Center for Life Science/Boston (CLSB).
In the spring of 2008, the installation of 528 photovoltaic panels on the roof of a manufacturing building was completed. This solar project is capable of producing 100,320 watts of direct current (DC) power, which is then inverted to approximately 85,000 wat ts of alternating current (AC) at 480 VAC.
