Eaton to Power MGM National Harbor Resort
Power management company Eaton, www.eaton.com, Cleveland, Ohio, is providing critical power distribution equipment and engineering services for the MGM National Harbor, www.mgmnationalharbor.com. Eaton solutions will help power the one million-sq.ft. resort on the Potomac River in Prince George’s County, Md.
Eaton received the contract from Phalcon Integrated, www.phalconusa.com, Farmington, Conn., a leading electrical contractor, and its subsidiary, J.E. Richards Inc. Phalcon is responsible for setting up the resort’s central plant, including all electrical and mechanical systems from startup, commissioning, and initial operation. The plant will support the entire facility, and Eaton solutions and services will help support safe, reliable, and efficient power for all resort activities.
The approximately $1 billion dollar resort will include a luxury hotel, casino, theater, retail shops, and restaurants. The project is expected to be completed in 2016.
The project will incorporate Eaton’s power-distribution solutions and engineering services as well as paralleling switchgear designed to support interoperability and connectivity so that facility managers have the information they need to make intelligent power management decisions and reduce operating costs.
Under the contract, Eaton will provide critical electrical system solutions including medium-voltage and low-voltage switchgear, switchboards, panelboards, Foreseer power monitoring software, spot network secondary equipment, and dry-type distribution transformers. Eaton will also provide engineering field services and training.
