Energy Optimization / Combined Heat & Power Renewable Project

Marquette, MI

Industry: General Industrial

Project Scope

As part of a campus energy optimization project, the University decided to install a new biomass fueled cogeneration combined heat and power (CHP) plant as an addition to the existing plant that will provide guaranteed cost savings. The new plant addition utilizes a solid fuel stoker boiler rate at 40,000 pounds per hour, capable of burning wood chips with natural gas as a back-up fuel. The new plant is capable of meeting 87% of thermal needs on campus.

CR Meyer was selected as the mechanical contractor to install the boiler and the auxiliary equipment. The project included installation of the following: Reciprocating Grate Combustion Assembly, Biomass Package Boiler, Preheater, Fly Ash Collector, Economizer, Electrostatic Precipitator, Stack, ID Fan, and Boiler Breeching.
