Document Description
UC Davis proposes to construct and operate the Steam Expansion Phase 1 project to add heating and cooling capacity to meet projected campus needs for steam production through 2011. In addition, the project would increase the reliability of the steam plant by providing sufficient capacity to allow for routine maintenance, unexpected shutdowns, and exceptional peaks in heating and cooling demand. The available capacity of the existing steam system is currently exceeded, requiring reserve capacity to be used to meet peak system demands. At the present time, the reliability of the existing system is low because if one of the primary steam boilers fails during a period of peak demand, there is no backup unit in reserve to maintain the necessary level of service. Major maintenance for the boilers at this time must be limited to work which can be completed during off-peak periods. If a boiler did fail during a period of peak demand, it would impact not only routine building heating and cooling, but also would affect important laboratory equipment functions and the maintenance of research materials critically dependent upon continued refrigeration.
