Jetmore Upgrades Generator

Jetmore picThe City of Jetmore has come a long way since January of 2014 when they chose KMEA to be their power supplier.

In late 2014, after a lengthy RFP process, the City of Jetmore chose Farabee Mechanical as their supplier and installer of a reconditioned Fairbanks-Morse generator. Farabee, along with others, installed a 2.5 MW opposed piston engine and generator set, a new breaker, controls, switchgear, piping, a diesel day tank, and associated equipment. The generator is capable of serving the vast majority of the city’s required capacity as well as their energy needs in an emergency situation. The city invested approximately $995,000 in this project. Initial startup and testing is scheduled this month.
