Air-Handling Unit #1 Supply Fan Motor and Variable Frequency Drive Replacement

MEDC seeks quotes to supply and install a 40-horsepower electric motor and associated VFD, as specified, to replace components on its existing AHU-1 in the mechanical penthouse.


More Details:

This project will include all necessary work to transport materials and equipment to the installation site, and any ancillary work to get motor in place at AHU. Replacement of existing fan and motor sheaves and belts are to be included, as well as proper alignment of shafts and sheaves once installed. Existing fan motor will remain in the mechanical penthouse following installation. Arrangements for site inspection prior to bidding can be made by contacting Dave Wilcox using the information provided below.

As part of its planned maintenance program, the MEDC is investing in capital repairs to the primary air-handling units at their facility located at 300 N Washinton Sq, Lansing, MI. The existing fan motor and VFD have been in service for over 20 years and are due for replacement, to enhance continuing trouble-free operation of this equipment.
