The State University of New York, College of Environmental Sciences and Forestry (SUNY ESF) in partnership with the New York Power Authority, undertook two chiller installations during the summer and fall of 2005, for the 2006 summer season.  The new chillers, like the obsolete units they replaced are housed in two, SUNY ESF classroom and lab buildings—Walters Hall and Illick Hall.

Shown here, in Walters Hall, an 85,560 square-foot building, is the new energy-efficient 90-ton twin screw compressor chiller and in an earlier photo, the 90-ton absorption chiller it replaced.  New chill water pumps and new variable speed drives for the pump motors were also installed.
