York Hospital Emergency Power Systems Improvements

In 2013 Wellspan Health Selected electrical contractor G.R. Sponaugle to perform the highly technical Emergency Power Systems Upgrade project at the York Hospital.

Features of the project included:

Action Motorsports

In 2005 a fire destroyed the famous Motorcycle and ATV dealer Action Motorsports in York, PA. After a long process the owners were ready to rebuild. They hired IBEW electrical contractor I.B. Abel to handle all of the new electrical work which included a state of the art shop area for the mechanics to service customer rvehicles and over 10,000 square foot show room.

York Energy Center (Calpine)

The York Energy Center, which was completed in 2011, replicates a model currently in use at the Hay Road and Bethlehem energy centers. The York plant  uses state-of-the-art, combined cycle, power generators capable of producing 565 megawatts of electricity. When Calpine acquired the facility in 2010 as part of its purchase of the Conectiv Energy assets, its construction was about 70 percent complete.

Fuddruckers York, PA

Fuddruckers famous burger joint hired York County electrical contractor Buzynski Electrical Contractor LLC to perform the electrical work on their new York PA location. This project was a renovation of an existing building to suit the build of the incoming restaurant. This project is a key example that no matter what the size or scope of your project may be, IBEW electricians and our associated electrical contractors are here to perform.

Brunner Island FGD Project

In early 2007 construction began on the immense FGD project at Brunner’s Island. Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) is a technology used to remove sulfur dioxide (SO2) from the exhaust flue gasses of fossil fuel power plants.

Fossil fuel power plants burn coal or oil to produce steam for steam turbines, which in turn drive electricity generators.

York Hospital Patient Care Tower

In 2002 Edwin L. Heim Electric Co. teamed up with IBEW 229 to install the electrical systems during the construction of the York Hospitals Patient Care Tower. Construction lasted nearly 3 years with the final product being a 6 story state of the art patient facility for heart,orthopedic, and maternity patients. A state of the art Heart Cath Lab was installed as well.

This project is another showcase of the extreme professionalism of the IBEW Local 229 electricians and the NECA team. We are proud to have been a part of this York County landmark.
