Chilled Water Plant
Nashville, TN

I. C. Thomasson Associates, Inc. (ICT) provided design services for a new 1,350 ton central chiller plant which was added to serve buildings on the university’s Peabody Campus. Two 675 ton absorption refrigeration machines are driven by the exhaust steam from the non-condensing turbine generator piped from the central boiler plant. 

A new 2,700-ton absorption chilled water plant was located in the existing University powerhouse adjacent to the new boilers. The chillers are also driven by exhaust steam from the non-condensing turbine generator. Also included in this project is a complete chilled water distribution system to serve the campus.
