East Campus Utility Plant Chiller #4 Addition

Timeline: 
August, 2014 to November, 2015

East Campus Cooling Tower


Project Scope: Main focus of the project is an addition to the existing Thermal Energy Storage (TES) building to house a new 2500 Ton chiller.  A new, 2 cell cooling tower will also be constructed to the west of the addition.  The project also includes a new cooling tower drain down basin, pumps and plate-and-frame heat exchangers for winter time cooling.  These heat exchangers will be used to charge the TES tank when outside temperatures are 38 Deg F or below, thereby saving electrical costs.  Estimated annual energy savings are more than $50K.
Budget: 
$5.8 Million
