The Volta facility was designed and constructed to meet the specialized requirements of our business beginning with a separate skid fabrication shop that ensures efficient and safe structural fitting and welding. The skids are then moved to our wet paint booth (28’ wide x 70’ long x 20’ high) where Volta then applies paint, undercoating and spray-on insulation as required by customer specifications.
Next, the completed skid is moved to one of our two large Electrical Equipment Center (EEC) assembly areas (88,0000 total SF). Walls that are manufactured and powder coated in our adjacent fabrication area are then erected.
Afterwards, large equipment (switchgear, MCC, transformers, VFD’s, etc.) are lowered via overhead cranes into the EEC and secured to the floor plate. Upon completion, the ceiling and roof are installed.
The EEC is completely manufactured and pre-tested indoors. After customer-accepted witness Factory Acceptance Testing, Volta provides safe and secure loading onto ground transportation via overhead cranes.
Both EEC assembly areas are supported by electrical assembly and sheet metal/powder coating areas.
In our electrical assembly area (20,000 SF), switchgear and MCC are manufactured and assembled to meet customer requirements.
The sheet metal/powder coating area (22,500 SF) provides finished sheet metal products for the electrical assembly and EEC walls and roof.
