CHL Cooling Towers & 12GeV Utilities Upgrade


Description and Features

Project provided additional cooling capacity and associated electrical infrastructure to support a $310,000,000 project to upgrade the electron beam accelerator power to 12GeV. Project provided three cooling towers with associated cooling water supply and return piping to new helium compressors located in an adjacent new building.

The project second phase will replace existing cooling towers with new units offering increased cooling capacity for existing helium compressors.

Electrical scope included expansion of the existing main substation with additional distribution capacity, underground primary distribution, provision of two new VFI transformers feeding MV motor control centers, and low voltage distribution to support both new and replacement cooling tower equipment.
