Project Description:
The Centennial Campus Utility Plant (CUP) is being expanded by 6,381 SF to accommodate the installation of a new 5.2 MW combustion turbine generator (CTG) and accompanying heat recovery steam generator (HRSG).  The CUP expansion is sized to accept the installation of a future CTG and HRSG or steam boilers as system demands dictate in the future.  A steam turbine generator (STG) and surface condenser (SC) are included in the project for converting steam to power in times when steam production is in excess of the required campus steam load.  A fuel gas compressor (FGC) provides natural gas as the primary fuel for the CTG, but the CTG has a dual fuel option to burn #2 fuel oil.  The following further describes the work:

  • Building and site construction associated with the 6,381 SF building expansion including extension of existing HVAC, lighting, fire protection, water, and sanitary services.
  • Deconstruction of the Central Utility Plant eastern wall for tie-in of the building expansion.
  • Steam, condensate, chilled water, condenser water, lube oil, vent and other piping systems to support the Cogen equipment to include shutdown windows and heavy coordination with NC State Facilities.
  • Turbine air intake ductwork and exhaust ductwork.
  • Rigging and setting of equipment to include field installation of loose shipped components provided by the equipment vendors.
  • Upgrades to the existing fuel yard including conversion from #6 to #2 fuel oil, new 37,500 gallon fuel oil tank, pump replacement at the exterior pump room, piping replacement to the building, conversion of the 80,000 pph boiler to No. 2 fuel oil and removal of an existing 10,000 gallon fuel tank.
  • Relocation of existing electrical ductbank and manhole that interferes with the new building expansion.
  • New transformers, pads and switches on the west side of the building along with associated ductbank and feeders.
  • Electrical systems to support the Cogen equipment operation, equipment interconnecting wiring, and install of loose shipped components provided by the equipment vendors.
