To support a large hospital expansion, a new Central Energy Plant (CEP) was designed to replace the aging existing. Site constraints drove the decision to configure the CEP with 2 floors plus a roof.
Central energy plant equipment includes:
Three 600-ton chillers and cooling towers
Five 6M BTU hydronic condensing boilers to serve the expansion
Two 300 BHP steam boilers to serve the existing facility
Four 7650 KW exterior emergency generators in enclosures located adjacent to the new CEP
N+1 redundancy is incorporated into all aspects of the CEP. The new CEP allows the existing to remain in operation until it is time to connect into existing systems, thereby minimizing down time and risk.
