s compressor and heat exchangers. These upgrades increase overall efficiency, conserve fossil fuels and reduce carbon emissions, while extending the life of the plant by an estimated 30 years.
The community—made up of three 33-story buildings, with on-site amenities like golf, tennis, pool, shopping, restaurants and more—will benefit from reduced running costs and a smaller carbon footprint with new equipment running solely on natural gas at higher efficiencies.
“By switching the system at North Shore Towers to natural gas we can increase the resilience of the heat and power supply, while cutting running costs and emissions,” stated Amir Yanni, of GI Energy.
The new system is fully operational as of July 23, 2014. The cost of maintaining the system will by cut by almost 40%, equal to about several hundreds of thousands of dollars a year for North Shore Towers. Castro emphasized that, “The project was a success largely due to the diligence of GI Energy, and the new equipment should serve North Shore Towers well for years to come.”
GI Energy, which has offices in Chicago, New York, Benicia, CA, and Anaheim, CA, has nearly a decade of experience with CHP systems through its acquisition of Chicago-based Endurant Energy LLC in 2011. Endurant Energy had previously been involved in developing and building the largest grid-connected CHP system in a commercial office building on the east coast, a 6.2 MW installation at One Penn Plaza in Manhattan.
