Ratification of Emergency Purchase Order M41748, Auxiliary Power
Generator, Northwest Water Reclamation Facility
Ratification of Emergency Purchase Order M41748, Auxiliary Power Generator for the
Northwest Water Reclamation Facility, with Ring Power Corp., in the amount of $135,891.
Funding is available in account 4420-038-1435-01-6310. The Water Reclamation Division
concurs with this recommendation.
This Purchase Order provided for Ring Power Corp. to furnish and install a new Caterpillar
Model CIS diesel generator set at the Northwest Water Reclamation Facility.
n accordance with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Domestic
Wastewater Facility Operating Permit, the Northwest Water Reclamation Facility is required
o maintain auxiliary electric power in the event of a commercial power failure to ensure the
continuous operation of the facility. One of the facility's auxiliary electric power generators
experienced a catastrophic failure and was not economically repairable due to the unit's age
(25 years). Ring Power Corp., had a generator set that met our requirements available and
ready for immediate installation. Other sources (MTU Onsite Energy and Cummins) could
not deliver for 12 to 15weeks. It was imperative that the failed generator be replaced on an
emergency basis to maintain the permit requirements. The price is considered reasonable
based on a comparison with prices previously paid by the County for similar equipment.
