For diesel gensets for backup power:
* two 150-kW units
* one 200-kW unit
* one 300-kW unit
The Richmond-San Rafael Bridge is a 5.5-mile long structure spanning the southern end of San Pablo Bay and connects the cities of Richmond and San Rafael on I-580. The bridge is undergoing a seismic retrofit. A continuous supply of power is needed to provide deck illumination, Coast Guard navigation lights, traffic control, call boxes, and the toll plaza. Because power outages are common the use of backup power generation is required. Generac provided the generation units.
The units are remotely monitored and controlled.
