Waupun Correctional Facility
Waupun, WI | Energy
ISG worked with Waupun Correctional Facility to overhaul its existing mechanical and electrical systems, yielding more efficient and consistent building operations.
In order to reduce energy usage and improve sustainability, Waupun Correctional Facility planned major mechanical and electrical system upgrades.
ISG led designs for the replacement of a number of mechanical and electrical systems at Waupun Correctional Facility. In order to install two new 43,000 lb/hr gas/oil package boilers and one new 60,000 lb/hr gas/oil package boiler—all with fintube economizers—the team needed to plan the demolition of the facility’s three 40,000 lb/hr coal-fired boilers and one 60,000 lb/hr de-rated gas/oil boiler. ISG also helped the facility replace its existing water softening system, condensate tank and pumps, feedwater pumps, blowdown tank, air compressors, fuel oil tank, and fuel oil pumps.
The new DCS system was installed with individual controls for each boiler, as well as a plant-wide balance of all controls to provide redundant input/output (I/O) and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to support and maintain the facility’s security and power systems.
