COMBINED HEATING AND POWER RENEWABLE ENERGY PROJECT
Project to use available energy-efficient technology and renewable energy sources
Construction of the Combined Heating and Power (CHP) Renewable Energy Project at the Canandaigua VA Medical Center is underway.
This project will install two biomass (wood chips) fueled steam boilers utilizing computer controlled gasification technology for high efficiency and low emissions within a new building addition to the existing central steam plant building. The proposed new building addition would additionally house a steam driven generator, automated conveyers, 4 days woodchip storage, emission control equipment and supporting utilities. Included with the project are site improvements to the Bushwood Lane Site Entrance, paving, landscaping and relocation of an existing pole barn structure.
