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 chiller. 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 heating. 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 systems. 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.
