Abiomed has developed a need for a new two-megawatt generator and powerhouse building to support their business resiliency needs. Abiomed is proposing the following improvements and modifications to the previously approved site plan:
- Addition of a new two-megawatt generator.
- Addition of a new powerhouse structure which will house critical electrical components to support the generator. The size of the powerhouse is currently estimated to be approximately 20' x 14.5'.
- Removal and relocation of the existing transformer in the rear parking lot.
- Associated electrical utility infrastructure improvements associated with these modifications.
The final size of the powerhouse structure may vary slightly as the design of the electrical components is still being finalized. However, the size of the structure will very closely approximate what is shown on the plans. To account this potential variability, the "increase in structure square footage" listed on the application form and fee calculation (1,700 SF) has been overestimated. The value listed on the application represents the approximate limit of work area shown on the plans, not the square footage of the structure.
