									Cogeneration Projects
M/E Engineering, P.C. (M/E) has studied and designed a vast variety of cogeneration and
energy related projects across New York State. The audits range from bin hour calculations to
full college campus computer models including lighting upgrades, HVAC equipment upgrades,
control modifications, cogeneration systems, photovoltaics, micro turbines and geo-thermal
heat pumps. A brief synopsis of representative projects are listed below.

 Rochester Institute of Technology,
 Combined Heat and Power Plant,
 Rochester, NY
 M/E completed design development documents of a
 project to provide a central heating and cooling plant
 with 4800 kW of engine driven cogeneration to serve
 the 3,500,000 SF campus. Two complete years of
 hourly electrical and natural gas consumption data
 were evaluated to ensure proper sizing of their
 projected $52M project.

 Monroe Community College - Cogeneration,
 Rochester, NY
 Complete design, construction administration and
 commissioning of a $7.5M central cogeneration plant
 to serve the MCC campus. The plant consists of four
 (4) 1200 kW generators connected electrically to the
 34.5 kV service with heat rejection to the central hot
 water loop, domestic water and central absorption

 Lockheed Martin – Cogeneration, Owego, NY
 Completed a study, cost estimate and design for the
 installation of a 225 psig, 500 kW backpressure steam
 turbine, which was paralleled with the electric utility
 supply and produced 40 psig steam output to the plant
 distribution system.

 DOT Region 9, Equipment Management
 Facility, Kirkwood, NY
 New 56,000 sq. ft. building was constructed following
 LEED for green/sustainable design and used a
 NYSERDA grant to provide incentives to include energy
 conservation measures including 30 KW of photovoltaic
 cells and a 60 kW micro-turbine with engine/exhaust
 heat recovery helps to reduce peak demand loads on
 the building.

                                                                  Value-driven solutions.
Strong Museum - Cogeneration,
Rochester, NY
M/E, in conjunction with Trane, developed a complete
computer model of the existing 165,000 SF plus the
proposed 105,000 SF additions to identify potential
mechanical, electrical and plumbing upgrades to the
existing structure and optimize the new central plant that
serves both the new and the existing Museum. The
audit resulted in a new central heating and cooling plant
with 350 kW of cogeneration. Additional energy
upgrades included modifications to 200,000 CFM of
existing air handling units, VAV retrofits, lighting retrofits
and control modifications.
Wyoming County Community Hospital Co-
Generation, Warsaw, NY
Mechanical and electrical design for new 550 kW
Cogeneration Plant and Replacement of existing 450
kW Emergency Generator. Provide wiring diagrams
specifications and calculations required by NYSEG for
paralleling of power produced by gas engine driven
generators and utility company waste heat recovery was
provided for heating system and domestic hot water

North Tonawanda City School District, North
Tonawanda, NY
Design for new 1000 kW cogeneration plant including
two (2) 375 kW generators, one (1) 250 gas engine
driven generator and a 900 kW natural gas backup
generator for the High School/Elementary School. This
performance contract called for disconnection from the
electric utility grid. Waste heat recovery was provided
for supplemental heating systems in the facility.

Eden Central School District - Co-Generation
Design, Eden, NY
District wide cogeneration system including two 300 kW
gas fired generators, with 600 kW backup diesel
generator. System provides significant heating
capability in adjacent high school utilizing waste heat
from generators. Conversion of the GLP Elementary
School from steam heat to hot water heating with boiler
retrofits, unit ventilator retrofits, new pumps and control

                                                                 Value-driven solutions.
Lake Shore Hospital Co-Generation Study,
Irving, NY
Submission of drawings, specifications and calculations
required by Utility Company in order to obtain approval of
cogeneration installation which was paralleled with the
electrical utility grid.

                                                             Value-driven solutions.
