PS&S assisted Columbia University in expanding its existing thermal plant while maintaining a familiar plant configuration. Columbia is a private institution with an enrollment of over 8,000 students with a campus spanning several city blocks in Manhattan. The University’s thermal plant produces steam to provide for the heating, air conditioning, and domestic hot water needs of the entire campus.
The boiler had to be sized to fit a predetermined mechanical footprint.
THE PS&S SOLUTION
A 100,000 lb/hr dual fuel boiler was designed, complete with low NOx burners and a flue gas recovery system to lower emissions. The boiler and burner controls were integrated with the existing automated control system.
PS&S also provided installation services for this project.
