Milton S. Hershey Medical Center

Penn State Health, The Milton S Hershey Medical Center, began implementing a multi-phased Energy Efficiency Program in 2009. The program has enjoyed success in reducing the energy intensity of the campus. A chilled water optimization system was implemented over the 2015 and 2016 cooling seasons. Penn State Health, The Milton S Hershey Medical Center is a 4.5 million sf campus, consisting of an Academic Medical Center including a Level 1 Trauma Center for both Adults and Children, Children’s Hospital, Cancer Institute, Heart and Vascular Institute, and Penn State’s College of Medicine. The presentation will investigate the production of chilled water for the Academic Medical Center. A district chilled water system comprised of 11 chillers totaling 13,300 tons of cooling, serve the cooling needs of the campus. The presentation will examine preventative maintenance which the facility has implemented, a hydraulic study of the chilled water system, implementation of a chilled water optimization system, energy profiles, power company energy efficiency incentives received, and implementation of magnetic bearing chillers.
