A Greenland Enterprises project was recently featured in a Power Engineering article on the investment the Veterans Administration is making for boiler systems across the country. The article highlights our Erie Medical Center boiler plant replacement in Erie, PA.

Here’s an excerpt from the article, and you can click here to read the full article.

“The engineering team at the VA determined that existing system had met its lifespan, and they wanted to replace with latest technology. Any short-term replacement would have simply been a Band-Aid. They realized, however, that a project of this magnitude would take time to do properly. The engineering team at the VA chose Greenland Enterprises, Inc. to handle the entire project based on their central plant expertise and track-record at other healthcare facilities.

“Based on the campus steam load, they determined that the replacement equipment would consist of two 400-horsepower boilers and one 200-horsepower boiler. Installation of the new boiler system took four months. From the ground up (including the new construction), the work on the project took 14 months to complete.”
