Gallagher & Burke, Inc.
December 2014–July 2018
The purpose of this project was to enhance and upgrade the runway safety area at Oakland International Airport with new fixtures, signs and NAVAID equipment. Royal was tasked with completely upgrading all FAA facilities to modern requirements, including RWY 28R Glide Slope, RVR, SAWS, MALSR and Localizer, Runway 10 PAPI and REIL and the VOR. This was achieved with multiple phases and temporary power cutovers without impacting the existing safety and security of the airport. Furthermore, minimal impact was felt by air carriers, the FAA and the Port of Oakland.
Procuring and installing the 12kV and 5kV main switchgear components, tying into an existing photovoltaic (PV) field and incorporating them with a new SCADA System as well as an UPS backup presented a formidable challenge.
Royal was able to provide a complete system by performing an independent power coordination and arc flash study, teaming with UL Testing Laboratories.
