(RVSS) Upgrade Program New Tower Construction Electrical Services – Arizona/Mexico Border
CRE provided electrical design and design standards to meet the operation requirements for Remote Video Surveillance Systems (RVSS) for the USACE, Fort Worth District. The project included 24 sites within CBP Tucson and Yuma Sectors along the US-Mexico Border. CRE also conducted a conceptual life cycle cost analysis of first cost and maintenance of the grid power across country, versus generator and/or solar array (stand alone) was performed for each of the four (4) tower sites. The typical tower site improvements were single 80’ monopole tower Government Furnished Material (GFM), a permanent and backup power source by generator and/or solar array with grounding, a compacted gravel parking area. Grid power for the tower sites required an H frame for a grid power meter, and a main panel box for 100Amp service was designed. The grid power was site specific. CRE also provided technical review of designs by others and provided technical support for preparation of the specifications. Design and construction administration services were provided.
