Project Description
East Cogeneration Plant Cooling Tower Replacement at the Utilities Building (UTB) located at 1100 S Morgan Street, Chicago, Illinois. Owner currently operates a 10,000 ton field erected cooling tower for heat rejection from the chillers at the East Cogeneration Plant. This cooling tower is constructed of wood and includes a concrete basin. The basin contains two dividing walls with openings to allow operation of the towers from a single basin. Age and reliability concerns have led the Owner to replace this equipment. This project will replace the existing cooling towers with new cooling tower cells providing a cooling capacity of 10,000 tons at a 78°F wet bulb temperature. The cooling towers will be awarded under one contract with an installation contractor awarded separately. The installation contractor shall receive, install, and place into operation the cooling towers as well as make necessary structural, piping, and electrical modifications at the plant to accommodate the new towers.
