Installation & Testing of Advanced Metering Systems, U.S. Coast Guard Installations, Nationwide

Location: Nationwide
Client: U.S. Coast Guard

Cardno TEC furnished all project management, engineering, labor, materials and equipment to design, install, test and place into service an advanced electric metering system for the United States Coast Guard (USCG). Additionally, Cardno TEC furnished web hosting services for the USCG to access the meter data for a year following installation to allow real-time access of the data. Cardno TEC installed 3,226 meters at 301 installations in 39 states/territories throughout the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. To facilitate the installation, Cardno TEC staff performed site surveys at each location and developed metering plans for each facility. The metering equipment that was installed reports 26 variables including kilowatts (total, minimum and average per phase); power factor (total load and per phase); voltage (line to line, line to neutral and for each phase); and amperage (average current and per phase).
