Optimization of Largest Sensible TES CHW System in Manhattan with Hudson River Heat Rejection 

02-20-2020 11:23

Summary

Brookfield Place undertook a plant modernization of their 15,000 Ton CHW plant. The plant circa early 1980's was designed with (13) 280,000 gallon TES tanks, River heat rejection via 11 titanium PFHXs, and 47 CW/TES/CHW pumps. The plant, located 5 floors below grade in lower Manhattan, required 90.1 compliant chiller rebuilds on (7) 1,500 Ton chillers (cond and evap retube, new comps, and VFDs). The rebuild had to be completed in a 6 month period while maintaining delivery of 40F CHW with zero downtime to the 8MM sqft high end mix use real-estate. The controls upgrade and chiller modernization has resulted in over a 4MW permanent peak power reduction in one of the most constrained electrical grids. The project has an exceptional ROI.
