  • The Phase 2 electrical contractor at the Dental School completed the removal of the 480V electrical service that was deactivated by Entergy. 
  • At the Student Parking Lot lighting project, the contractor has completed driving the piles in Student Lot #3 and the conduits have been installed in the trench. 
    • The contractor also began driving piles in Student Lot #2 and this work will be finished by COB tomorrow. 
  • Entergy has informed the contractor at 1542 Tulane Ave. that they will be on site Monday, October 15th to energize the building. 
  • The recently installed refurbished motor and VFD at the Central Utility Plant are still running and no problems have occurred.  After a period of 7 days with no problems the contractor will begin connecting the filter to the other VFD and motor. 
    • Concurrently, they are working with their subcontractor to reprogram the VFD to correct the problem with the amp output to the monitoring and control system.  The monitoring of the amp output does not affect the operation of the equipment.
