Toronto Pan Am & Parapan Am Games

Providing diesel powered energy for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am & Parapan Am Games.

CHALLENGE

As the temporary energy services supplier for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games, the customer needed to deliver diesel power energy for the events. The games were the largest international multi-sport event ever hosted in Canada with more than 10,000 athletes and officials present from over 40 countries. Over 50 MW of temporary power was required to provide primary and back-up power for the events. For such a large scale sporting event, continuous power was critical to keep the games running smoothly.
Newly enforced regulations for the use of temporary power in Ontario became an unexpected challenge that meant that the energy supplier was going to be charged a large fine for using their existing diesel fuel equipment to power the event if they did not meet certain standards and installation codes.

SOLUTION

The TransCube suited the events well with its transportability and ease of use. Various models of TCGs were spread across the event, supporting the 100+ generators used to help ensure the extended run times and loads needed. In regards to the newly enforced regulations, Western worked with both the customer and the authorities to develop an interim solution that satisfied both the needs of the event and the new regulations so the event could be continued as planned.

RESULTS

The transportability of the TransCube enabled the customer to quickly and easily deploy and set up on the tanks on site. By leaning on Western Global’s technical team, the customer was able to meet the newly enforced regulations and continue as planned without being charged significant fines.
