A recent report from Energy Innovation makes the case that, in many areas of the country, the economic forecast points to a coal-cost crossover – where the costs of new local wind and solar resources are less than ongoing coal plant operation. According to the report, this assessment is valid even as federal tax credits phase out.
A recent article in Chemical Engineering highlights the increased efficiencies available by improving condensate recovery in pressurized steam systems. The premise is that recovering steam condensate can provide 15-35 percent fuel cost savings when compared to more traditional vented steam-condensate systems. Continue reading
Like a phone’s dial tone, uninterrupted power is often taken for granted until the power goes out and you need it. While power outages are a disruption for many businesses and organizations, for medical centers and clinics power loss can be life-threatening. As facilities age, the industry as a whole is seeing more demands for uninterrupted power in central plant specs. Continue reading
A Joint Venture between Greenland Enterprises and SAW Contracting has been awarded a $16.5M project to replace three boilers at the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville, FL. The combination of each company’s experience and expertise ultimately created the best offering for the Department of Veterans Affairs in awarding this project.
The project involves building a new boiler plant and replacing three water tube boilers with three fire tube boilers, along with new controls and related systems. The boilers provide steam for the medical center campus, and a critical element of the project is keeping the existing boiler plant online during construction and commissioning. Once the new plant is online, the SAW-Greenland team will dismantle and remove the old boilers and related equipment.
Greenland Enterprises has been selected by NASA for a $10.7M project to construct a complex compressor system at the Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Hampton, VA. This comprehensive project will supply LaRC’s wind tunnels and test facilities with 8 lbs./sec. high-pressure air at 6,000 psi and -80degF dewpoint.
Greenland Enterprises is teaming with SAW Contracting to remove and replace three boilers at the VA Medical Center in Marion, IL. The best-source selection project involves work in and around the 1940’s boiler house building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
When North Carolina State University needed to update the Centennial Campus’ chilled water capacity without a costly plant expansion, it turned to Greenland Enterprises in Hampton, VA. The firm is known for its Design-Build expertise, and providing solutions for challenging and complex mechanical systems. Continue reading
Greenland Enterprises continues to build its national reach with a recent $4.9M contract award. Greenland was selected to build a new boiler plant for a medical Rehabilitation Center and Clinic in White City, OR. Continue reading
Greenland Enterprises has been awarded a $6.8 M contract for the demolition of existing structures and installing four, two-megawatt, 12.2 Kv generators at the Veterans Administration Medical Center facility in Richmond, VA. Continue reading
Greenland Enterprises has been awarded a $1.1 million design-build contract to replace an air handling unit at the VA Medical Center in Newington, CT. The firm was selected in large part due to its unique HVAC expertise in healthcare environments.
Because of the sensitive location and need to minimize downtime, Greenland will use a factory-built modular air handling unit that will be assembled on site. This approach reduces on-site construction time compared to traditional approaches, which is important due to the unique needs of the healthcare facility.
