Adventist Shady Grove Medical Center
Located in the Washington DC metropolitan area, Adventist Shady Grove Medical Center contracted PEECO for the sites critical power upgrade. Included in the package was 13.2kV Emergency Paralleling Switchgear feed by three 2.5MW standby diesel generators.

All of which was controlled via PLC automation and site SCADA with OIT equipment located in control rooms around the site.
