University of Minnesota, Main Energy Plant + Chilled Water Plant

Requiring advanced technical expertise, we have acute knowledge and experience to manage large-scale, power plant installation and remodel projects.

The project includes two field-erected 3,000T nominal steam driven chillers, a field-erected cast-in-place two-cell cooling tower and integration with campus chilled water system. Working in an active operational combined heat and power plant, the project included tie-ins to existing combined head and power waste heat which provides high-pressure steam to drive the chillers, diversifying the chilled water generation equipment for the campus.

The project transforms the Main Energy Plant (MEP) into a Combined Cooling, Heat and Power (CCHP) plant.  Built alongside the Mississippi bluff’s the project required drilled piers, micropiles and temporary earth retention systems (TERS) to allow for installation of the new substructure and structure within the existing Main Energy Plant.
