Client: Elkridge Fire Department, Elkridge, Maryland – Critical Emergency Power Infrastructure Project
Fidelity Power provided off the grid emergency power generation to sustain critical operations in time of disaster for a sustained operation for emergency operations.
Fidelity Power Systems provided the environmentally friendly KOHLER backup generator for the new, state-of-the-art Elkridge Fire Department firehouse. This 34,000 square-foot facility houses a volunteer and paid fire department, along with a community center and shelter requiring a need for a large emergency standby generator that provides back-up power for the entire facility. The generator supports critical systems that include communications equipment, 911 call center, charging equipment, lighting, living facilities climate control, and building management requirements. This facility required a solution to provide for extended generator runtime in the event of a long-term power grid failure.
The Elkridge Fire Department project consisted of a KOHLER 750kW natural gas generator with a level 2 sound attenuated enclosure. This KOHLER generator was selected because natural gas is readily available in the area, provides extended runtime for long term power outages, and is environmentally friendly.
The 10-month project was completed within the construction schedule timeframe and on budget, and Fidelity Power Systems provides maintenance and service on the generator.
