Arc flash can result in serious injury or death when an electrical discharge arcs from one piece of equipment through the air to ground or another piece of equipment. Temperatures in excess of 35,000 degrees can cause severe burns. The danger is especially acute if workers will have to work on energized equipment. Fortunately, our arc flash hazard service and study of a planned electrical system can spot unnecessary hazards for engineers and contractors during design and before construction, as well as suggest specific maintenance procedures to minimize risks. The result is a safer environment for workers who will operate and maintain equipment after installation.

SHEDDING LIGHT ON CANCER RESEARCH
When a new 21-story research center was being constructed in New York City, Turtle & Hughes Lighting department put together one of its most complex packages ever. This included custom-designed lab bench lighting fixtures that work in conjunction with a daylight harvesting system and a shade control system. The system prevents light pollution at night, creating a controlled environment to conduct research so scientists could achieve a better understanding of the disease and how to manage it.
Hudson Yards is the largest development in New York City in almost 100 years; a self-contained neighborhood with residential, office and commercial buildings, shops, restaurants, a creative hub, parks, playgrounds and a school. Two cogeneration plants — with switchgear from Turtle & Hughes — form a smart microgrid, which is designed to keep the complex running, even in the event a power outage.
When it opened in 2013, the Catskill-Delaware Ultraviolet Disinfection facility became the world’s largest UV water treatment facility, covering two billion gallons of drinking water and adding a layer of protection for more than nine million New York residents. Turtle & Hughes consulted on the project prior to construction, provided project management and equipment during the construction, and continues to offer technical support today.
