At the 125th Street Pumping Station, the existing boilers were well beyond their expected service life and in need of replacement. The PBC replaced the existing 100 HP steam boilers with new high-efficiency fire-tube steam boilers. The new boilers have been sized to better match the heating load of the building, with improved turn-down capability for more efficient low-load operation.
This project is part of the MWRD Energy Efficiency Program designed to identify and install energy conservation measures at MWRD facilities to reduce energy consumption and operating/maintenance costs.
