Griffiss Utility Services Corporation (GUSC), provides steam heat and distributes electricity to the tenants of Griffiss Business and Technology Park in Rome, New York.
GUSC maximizes the use of the park's existing energy infrastructure and employs responsible environmental practices to provide economical and reliable utilities to tenants in an effort to encourage economic development of the park and region.
The nonprofit utility corporation has begun its extensive Combined Heat and Power Project to establish an energy cost stabilization plan in which existing infrastructure is retrofitted to develop a system that provides heat and electricity from wood chips. The result will be a double benefit: cost efficiency of a system that generates heat and power from a single source of fuel and long term dependability of a flexible energy system. In addition to wood chips, GUSC will continue to have the ability to also use natural gas or oil.
The project is designed as a long term, cost effective solution to energy needs for the business park, and consists of construction of a 40,000 lb/hr wood biomass facility with a 900Kw steam turbine generator.
At O'Connell, with our experience and training in innovative energy and power alternatives, we were awarded two contracts to assist with the Combined Heat and Power Project.
Under contract with Bette & Cring, a construction company located in Albany, NY, we are working to provide the power distribution and large motor feeders.
A second contract, with a company from Vancouver, WA, was awarded to complete all the wiring for the instrumentation, controls, and all of the small motors.
