RE: RFB 1109 Chiller Replacement - De-Cal, Inc.


Upon recommendation of Suzanne Coffey, Chief Planning Officer, Interim Chief Operating Officer - Wastewater, the Board of Directors (Board) of the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) authorizes the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to enter into an Agreement for Chiller Replacement with De-Cal, Inc. at a cost not to exceed $1,049,240.00 and authorizes the Chief Executive Officer to take such other action as may be necessary to accomplish the intent of this vote.


This is a replacement needed for an outdated, poorly operating current chiller that is not adequately providing air conditioning for the New Administration Building at the Water Resource Recovery Facility. The chiller system was installed in 1995 and its operation has been deteriorating over the last five years. The current chiller runs on gas, which causes the gas bills to be high during the winter and summer months. The scope of improvements include replacement of the 300-ton gas fired absorption chiller/heater with two modular 255-ton electric chillers and two high-efficiency gas fired 1,500 MBH heating hot water boilers. In addition, six pumps serving the heating systems and chilled water systems will also be replaced. A plate and frame heat exchanger will be required to isolate the new chillers from the existing cooling tower system.
