A global pharmaceutical manufacturer commissioned EES to install the PROCOS Chiller Optimization System on an ammonia chiller plant. The client made a commitment to reducing its carbon footprint by installing ammonia chillers for production and office cooling. The system was designed to run efficiently and minimize energy usage while maintaining operational reliability.
The facility is a pharmaceutical plant located in Puerto Rico. The owner wanted a seamless solution that would utilize the best-in-class hardware for controls of the ammonia chillers along with all support systems such as pumps, towers, and scrubber. The owner also required that the system provide a high degree of operational diagnostics so that efficient operations would occur as well as provide proactive indications to potential problems. The facility consisted of the following:
Characteristics of the new control system:
The new facility was up and running in an efficient manner thereby maximizing the payback through efficient PROCOS operation. This contributed to their overall bottom line. The system was designed to be user friendly and intuitive for the manufacturing environment in Puerto Rico. Upon completion of the project, the client commissioned Engineered Energy Solutions to incorporate additional systems into PROCOS. The system reports on daily utility usage and provides cost savings to allow the operators to effectively control costs. The system also trends water usage so that recycled rain water and AHU condensate can be used for tower makeup thereby reducing their freshwater costs
