Contract Value: $225,000
Completion Date: June 2004
Highlights: A/E; power distribution design; load studies and assessment.
ARUSI has been selected as part of the system design team for the Automated People Mover project at Sky Harbor International Airport. ARUSI is providing the engineering, design, and assessment of the power distribution system to support the $600 million plus APM System. Additionally, ARUSI is conducting load studies that will consider propulsion power, station electrical loads, and guide-way heating. This analysis also includes projecting the annualized consumption value and a forecasted peak operational load at each terminal to estimate the power allocation to each terminal on this basis. ARUSI’s analysis will involve locating power distribution facilities and preparing the preliminary design report for the entire power propulsion system.
