Intelsat’s expansion of their Mountainside Teleport required a third generator and additional electrical service to meet their growing demand. Their existing facility was designed with this planned expansion in mind; but when the third generator was implemented, acoustical consideration for the adjacent offices and conference rooms was a primary concern. A 1.5 megawatt generator, new electrical switch gear, and an additional 20,000 gallon fuel tank were installed to provide the appropriate backup capacity of Intelsat’s increased demand. Exterior sound baffles and an acoustical wall provide a sound buffer from adjacent spaces.
An additional support structure was required by the relocation of several antennae from another teleport. The antenna support facility will command 5 full motion arrays.
