Boiler Plant Replacement, Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center

boiler plant upgrades

Design collaboration on the Wilkes Barre Boiler Plant replacement project provided a better equipment layout and is anticipated to improve plant efficiency by at least 7% through the installation of economizers.

Due to the existing facility’s physical site constraints, the considerable space needs for the Boiler Plant, and the need to maintain continuous plant operation in supplying steam to the facility, four (4) design options were developed.  The selected option and subsequent design is based on constructing a 4,000 SF new/expanded boiler plant, new control room, and ‘shell space’ addition (for a future chiller plant).
