Project Description

Central Utility Plant Upgrades at A.I. DUPONT Children’s Hospital in Delaware

Trent performed a number of facility renovations at this heath care center over a period of at least four years. These included replacement of two large steam boilers, installation of a new 3000 ton water chiller and pumps, replacement of three emergency generators in the generator room, rebuild of several fan housings in air handlers and significant control upgrades for all of these systems.

Work also included installation of compressed air tank, dryer and air compressor for control air. Significant electrical work was done on switchgear, ATS and distribution panels to support the projects and installation of two large capacity emergency generators on a pad outside the building with all new paralleling gear.

Trent and its electrical contractor won an ABC Organization Annual Contracting award for the design and functionality of this electrical generation system.
