Dow Chemical Hires IMEC to Design and Construct New Chiller Plant

IMEC has been chosen by Dow Chemical to design and build a chiller plant to augment current capacity in its Marlborough, MA facility. Two new 700 Ton chillers will be integrated to create 1,400 Tons of additional capacity.

The chillers will be complemented by a single two-cell cooling tower and two prefabricated duplex pump skids with Variable Speed Drive (VSD) technology. An ultrasonic flow meter will monitor flow and chilled water load to the facility, with an Allen Bradley PLC maximizing the efficiency of the system.

IMEC’s creative design has produced a utility rebate of $500,000.

The project is underway with a scheduled completion date of Spring 2019
