Staff recommends approval of the purchase from Sanders Company, Inc. for motor and motor control upgrades to the Plantation Water Treatment Plant for $34,703.00.
This purchase is for a necessary improvement to the Plantation Water Treatment Plant. The present pump motors and motor control center are inadequate to meet present-day water demands. These upgrades will replace the existing pump motors and controllers, which are inefficient and underrated, with properly rated motors suitable to meet the demand patterns of the Plantation service area and to remain in compliance. This upgrade will also fully connect the Plantation Water Treatment Plant into the City’s existing remote monitoring (SCADA) system.
This purchase is a single-source purchase. The Sanders Company, Inc. is the sole source representative in the state of Florida for Siemens Water Technologies (formerly US Filter/Control Systems). The sole source letter from US Filter/Control Systems is attached.
1. Approve the purchase as stated above for $34,703.00, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
This purchase will be funded from the Bond Anticipation Note funding previously approved by commission. A budget amendment will be made available for the amount of this purchase.
