Scope of Work

The low part load upgrade at LaPaloma was the 2nd upgrade in North America. Therefore, project knowledge for this upgrade was minimal. Learning the entire system with minimal training on the system as well as learning the mechanical side system was undertaken by SG Energy team members in preparation.


Before mobilizing to the site, we conducted on-site training sessions for both the electrical and millwright teams, dedicating two hours each day to ensure they were fully prepared. Additionally, daily training sessions were held on-site before the commencement of work each day. To support this comprehensive training program, we supplied a variety of training materials, including videos, pictures, and meticulously red-lined electrical drawings. This approach ensured that all team members were well-equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills for the job ahead.
