SJSU – Central Plant Improvement

Notice to Proceed has been issued on the SJSU Central Plant Improvement Project. Work includes electrical & controls to support the replacement of (2) 1,200 ton chillers, (2) 75HP and (2) 40HP chilled water pumps & VFDs, (2) 200HP condenser water pumps & VFD’s, (2) 200HP cooling tower fan VFD’s. Electrical work involves installation of 5kV distribution & transformers, 480V power distribution systems, as well as 120V power and controls. This project also involves replacement of the entire HVAC-grade facility control system with a more robust industrial-grade PLC-type facility control system. This new system will allow for more advanced control strategies. The existing controls system will be replaced with the new PLC based system while the plant remains operational and in service. Work is expected to be complete by Summer of 2012.
