Power Plant Expansion
The Medical School’s co-generation plant will be expanded to accommodate the addition of the Albert Sherman Center to its load and to enhance the power plant’s capacity for emergency electricity, steam, and chilled water. The project will add a 7.5 megawatt gas-fired turbine, two chillers and two cooling towers. In addition, full consideration will be given to new green energy-producing technologies that could improve the plant’s existing 80/20 fuel ratio of natural gas and No. 6 oil.
