Hot Water Boiler Plant Optimization

Hot Water Boiler Plant Picture

Five Vancouver residential towers in BC’s lower mainland underwent boiler plant retrofits to replace the existing the boiler plants with high efficiency condensing boilers and variable speed hot water pumps.

CES provided measurement and verification services for the projects, following IPMVP option B: retrofit isolation. Through monitoring and tracking overall plant efficiency with a centralized ecoOPERA™ EMIS, we were able to identify deficiencies in the plant control sequences that were causing sub-optimal performance, including low boiler thermal efficiencies. Recommendations were made to optimize the plant operation.
