800 Ton Chiller Replacement at Central Plant

Bakersfield, California

Replacement of an existing 800 ton centrifugal chiller and related appurtenances at the Central Heating and Cooling Plant on the main campus. The project included replacing the refrigerant monitoring system, replacing the existing 10" & 12" welded steel CWS/R & CHWS/R lines to the chiller, and adding a small exhaust fan to purge the room in the event of a refrigerant leak. Working in the severely restricted mechanical room, the existing chiller, concrete pad and associated piping were surgically removed by way of a modified roof access hatch. A news concrete pad was placed to accommodate the new 800 Ton Chiller which required partial disassembly in order to fit through the roof hatch. Serving as the prime contractor, we also coordinated all activities of our sub contractors including insulation, painting, roofing, electrical and controls & Instrumentation.
