This project consists of design of a 5,260 SF addition to the existing plant. There is space for four new boilers and a fifth boiler to be added in the future. Total plant capacity is 1600bhp (boiler horse power) capable of expanding to 2100bhp and providing a +1 spare capacity online. The central plant serves the entire VA Central Iowa Health Care – Des Moines Campus and Hospital. Boilers are capable of on-the-fly fuel transition with the ability to be connected to an emergency mobile boiler heat source and dedicated emergency power generator. The existing boiler plant space has been gutted for the Chiller Plant expansion.
