Texas A&M University Combined Heat and Power Upgrades

Project Location: College Station, TX

Date Completed: December 2011

Owner: Texas A&M University

Architect: Jacobs Engineering Group


The project included the installation of a 34 MW aeroderivative GE LM2500+G4 gas turbine generator, a 200,000 pound per hour heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), a 11 MW back-pressure steam turbine generator, a 30,000 pound per hour boiler, control room renovations, installation of pressure reducing stations, and the associated balance of plant auxiliary equipment. In addition, the project consisted on installing approximately two miles of 4-foot by 6-foot electrical and communication duct banks through the heart of campus via open trenching and directional boring. All work was closely coordinated with the University to minimize impact to the campus.  

Client Testimonial:

HCB has provided the experience and expertise necessary to manage and construct a very complex network of electrical duct bank through some of the most congested areas of the Texas A&M University campus, including on-site construction administration to keep the project on schedule and within budget."
