Chilled Water System Upgrade Study

The Chilled Water System project involved the planning of long-term equipment repair and replacement for a 16,000-ton chilled water system at a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility. Recommendations were generated for sequencing equipment replacement considering installed, maintenance and operating costs, equipment age, refrigerant phase-out, and future load changes. This task required the application of lifecycle metrics, refrigeration regulations, and operating profiles to generate a complete cash flow analysis of various alternatives.

Scope of Work

  • Establish criteria for replacement vs. retrofit.
  • Characterize condition of existing equipment.
  • Determine appropriate refrigerant phase-out schedules.
  • Characterize existing operating profiles based on historical data.
  • Identify probable future load changes.
  • Characterize efficiency of existing and future equipment.
  • Create customized software-based life cycle analysis tools.
  • Identify equipment replacement scenarios.
  • Quantify life cycle cost impacts for the various scenarios.
