The Health System Chilled Water Precinct includes two plants,
a north and south, to provide chilled water and cooling to educational,
research, clinical facilities, and the hospital. This project installed
the last chiller in an open bay in the South Chiller Plant and emergency
power generators for cooling the critical patient care areas of the
hospital. The chiller installation consists of a chiller, cooling tower,
pumps, piping, and the systems to control these. The chiller provides
N+2 capacity for the Health System, to assure that even if two chillers
were out of service, there is capacity to cool all space within the system.
During a power outage at the health system, life safety needs are provided
by emergency generators for each of the facilities. There is also a need
to provide for critical patient care areas within the hospital during such
Two 2,500 kW generators and the controlling switchgear have been
installed in a new generator farm located between the Lee and 11th
street garages. Systems were operational in June 2011.
