Biomass Plant

The existing central heating plant (#6 fuel oil) was replaced as the primary heating system for the campus by a biomass plant. The construction cost of $4.9 million included $1.3 million in Chiptec biomass 400hp boiler equipment and a 150kw steam turbine. The site work was challenging as the footings were below the water table and included removal of oil contaminated soils in a tight location requiring shoring. The wood chip bin is oversized to meet the demands of the college for five days of storage. Also included was upgrading some of the equipment in the existing boiler room system. Completed in 2011, value $5.1 million.
