University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh

Oshkosh, WI | Energy

Overview

ISG designed the replacement of key mechanical and electrical systems for the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh that required strategic planning to avoid service interruptions.


Opportunity

The University wanted to replace its boiler, emergency generator, and motor control center with higher capacity systems.

Solution

The University required replacement of an existing 15,000 lb/hr boiler with a new 26,000 lb/hr boiler, replacement of a 100 kW emergency generator with a new 250 kW generator, replacement of an outdated 208V motor control center, and transfer switch with new 480V equipment. The project included a new boiler, economizer, flame management system, forced draft fan, piping, associated equipment, motors, controls, and asbestos abatement. This facility had two existing coal fired boilers that needed to remain in service during the installation of the new boilers and be able to operate simultaneously with the new boiler following installation.
