Penn State University West Campus Chilled Water Plant
The original master plan for the plant was for a 10,000 ton primary/secondary system. PSU engaged TEI who reconfigured and upgraded the piping system to a variable primary flow and a build out of 13,500 Tons. This reconfiguration included an addition of 1500 Tons to the existing 2,000 Tons that were installed in Phase 1. This expansion is in accordance with the Master Plan and Phase 1 design completed by Trefz Engineering in 2003. The project fitted out the remainder of the electrical switchgear bringing the total capacity to 15.0 MW. The project completed the chilled water and condenser water piping, expanded the controls system, installed an additional 750 tons of free‐ cooling along with pumps, cooling towers, and ventilation systems.
