Reliant Energy-Indian River
The Indian River power plant near Titusville, Florida, comprises four combustion turbines and three conventional steam-generating units fueled by both oil and natural gas. Indian River has an aggregate net generating capacity of 587 MW, which represents about 1.5% of the total generation capacity in the state of Florida.
After more than 40 years in service, Indian River required an overhaul of its HVAC system. Folsom Services installed a Trend solution that monitors and controls a brand new, high-efficient chilled water plant, which replaced antiquated refrigerant air conditioners that used open drive compressors.
The Indian River project includes three chillers, seven chilled water air handling units, and 21 fan-powered and VAV boxes.
StarChild Academy-Lake Mary
To overcome the astronomical costs of an indoor air quality system, the StarChild Academy in Lake Mary required intelligent control of its four fresh air units. Folsom Services interlocked the existing 27 split units into four groups—each with a single fresh air unit—so that when any fan on any unit came on, all the other fans in that group were energized. This enabled the academy to minimize energy use, maintain fresh air quantities and avoid any equipment stress with control overrides.
