My question is related to service entrances in an industrial environment. I have been handed a half completed job in which we have a campus of 5-6 buildings with various processes happening in each. We have a boiler building that gets power to several motors from an MCC building. Of course the boiler building needs lighting, outlets, and some miscellaneous power. I know this building should have a separate service entrance. I was going to put in a 480V panel, service entrance, to serve this building. However, this entrance won't kill power to all devices in the building (motors fed from MCC building). So, my thought was to still put in the service entrance so everything can be properly bonded. However, what to do, if anything, about the motors in this building being powered from an MCC located in a separate building? Would I be violating the NEC by doing this? Thanks!
