A United States military facility wanted to find long-term energy solutions to reduce operation and maintenance costs while increasing efficiency. TKDA helped complete a study that would allow the campus to reach these goals.
Under contract with PERTAN Group, TKDA provided consulting services to perform a detailed study for the replacement of the campus’s central steam heating system with a hot water system and a central chiller loop. TKDA also provided an analysis of options for the replacement of the current central energy plant. To maximize efficiency, TKDA proposed a trigeneration option that included combined heat and power and recovery of heat in the winter and summer to generate chilled water for the campus.
