Chiller Plant Addition
This project provide for the addition of 2,400 tons of chiller capacity to the existing chiller plant. This included (2) 1,000 ton (4,460 volt), (1) 400 ton chiller (4,460 volt), an additional cooling tower cell, and new chiller and cooling tower pumps. A key facet of this project was the necessity to provide this additional chiller capacity in a manner that met hospital acoustical level standards.
Also, included with this project was the efficient integration of the staging of chillers for efficient use during part load operation.
Estimated cost of this project as $1.2 million, but actual cost came in significantly under the estimate due to creative use of Victaulic piping connections suggested by Design-Aire Engineering, Inc. (DAE) for Phase I installation that was mostly reusable under the subsequent Phase II installation designed by DAE.
