Pump & Dump System Injects Energy Savings

Our team performed a geothermal feasibility study for Under Armour to evaluate the systems’ potential impact on the company’s new global headquarters. This study included designing a pump-and-dump system, performing life cycle costs analyses, and correctly sizing the system for the 12-phase project.

After approval, we implemented our recommendations. The new Under Armour Global Headquarters campus features a chilled water plant that utilizes bay water as a heat rejection source. The bay water is pumped from an intake apparatus located in the bay through titanium plate-and-frame heat exchangers and discharged to a high-performance lake. The high-performance lake filters the bay water before returning to the watershed.
