Bifurcating a Central Plant for Redundancy and Reliability 

02-27-2019 16:17

Summary

The Owner requested true reliability as the plant was going through a coal to gas conversion. Each piece of equipment and system was designed for N + 1 redundancy. The plant still presented a single point of failure mode so the solution was to bifurcate it. This resulted in “air gapping” the two main sections and splitting chilled water and steam production assets. The project was successful in obtaining 60% redundancy with the two-plant layout.
