Central plant expansion supports long-range campus development
As part of its 30-year long-range development plan, the University of California San Diego expanded its central plant capacity with four 3,000-ton centrifugal chillers powered by electric water cooling.
This system provides 31,200 ton-hours of thermal energy storage to the main campus using an equally sized cooling tower, condenser, and chilled water pumps for each chiller. Additional capacity and related acoustical treatment will continue to meet the campus’ growing needs for years.
