AMERICAN ELECTRIC POWER
FORT WAYNE CHILLER PLANT REPLACEMENT



Bruner Corporation was contracted to design and install a replacement chilled water cooling system for American Electric Power’s office facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The facility is 26 stories tall, has over 337,000 sq. ft. of occupied space, and remained completely occupied during the system replacement. The new 1,200-ton chilled water cooling system involved replacing the complete chiller plant, including pumping systems, piping, and controls. As a turnkey project for AEP, our scope of work included all facets of the plant, including commissioning, demolition, recycling, structural systems, general trades, electrical systems, and temperature controls. The new plant features a variable primary chilled water pumping system supplied by two 500-ton high-efficiency water cooled chillers and one 200-ton high-efficiency air cooled chiller that is connected to the buildings emergency power system. It replaced a 26-year-old, inefficient air cooled chiller plant. The project was completed per current LEED-EB standards.
