Roswell Park Cancer Institute Chilled Water Plant Mechanical Contract

Danforth was awarded the mechanical contract for the design and construction of a new chilled water plant at Roswell Park Cancer Institute located in Buffalo, New York.

The Danforth team designed and built a new chilled water plant for the hospital to meet an increasing demand. A new 2500 ton chiller was piped in parallel with the two existing 500 ton chillers to service critical areas of the hospital. A new cooling tower, pumps, and control system were installed to improve efficiency and satisfy demand. A penthouse was also installed to house the new chiller, pumps and a future emergency standby generator. Three new high efficiency cooling towers were installed on the roof and variable speed drives (VSD’s) were installed on all fan and pump motors in the scope of work. Heat exchangers were also installed to provide chilled water supply source flexibility.

Work was completed without disruption to critical patient care areas of the hospital. Danforth used coordination between the design engineers and the installation crew to complete the project in a timely and professional manner, leaving the customer satisfied.
