Stanford Selects Pumps for District Heating System
Stanford University selected three different ITT Goulds Pumps models as part of its district heating plan that will replace a current natural gas-powered cogeneration plant with an electricity-powered heat recovery plant.
Scheduled for completion in 2015, Stanford’s Energy System Innovations (SESI) program is a $438 million investment in an energy-efficient power system, which will save the school about $300 million over the next 35 years. The 125,000-gross-sq-foot facility will allow the university to regenerate the waste heat that the current cogeneration plant discards. The campus can recover up to 70 percent of the heat now discharged from the cooling system to meet at least 80 percent of simultaneous campus heating demands.
Capturing and distributing the heat requires high-efficiency pumping systems and replacement of about 20 miles of piping across the campus. Twenty-five large double-suction pumps from Goulds Pumps will provide Stanford’s new energy facility with high-efficiency pumping required for the SESI program.
