High-Efficiency Chiller Installation

VA Mather
Sacramento, CA

The Energy Center on a healthcare campus is served by three 450-ton chillers and cooling towers which are insufficient to support existing loads during peak summer months.

A single new 600-ton high efficiency chiller was added to meet the cooling load capacity. Additionally, a new water side economizer plate and frame heat exchanger was installed to reduce chiller operating hours and operating costs.

The new cooling tower operates with the three existing towers being totally redundant. The new chiller and tower with associated pumps are tied into the existing BMS control system.

Services provided included field reconnaissance, surveys and site investigations, design, drawings, specifications, construction and bid documents.
