Eastman Business Park offers a full suite of utilities using the power of Tri-Generation. High pressure steam from utility-grade boilers is used to "Co-Generate" electricity before distributing steam at different pressure levels, and is also used to "Tri-Generate" refrigeration for process and comfort cooling. Powering the site as a whole makes Eastman Business Park twice as efficient as a standard public utility.
STEAM - 1,500,000 pounds per hour firm capacity from utility-grade boilers with emergency backup boilers. Steam is generated at 1400 psig/900°F
and supplied to customers at different nominal pressure levels of 260 psig, 140 psig, 70 psig and 5 psig.
ELECTRIC - 130,000 kilowatts firm capacity of co-generation from steam reduction with backup inter-connections with the public utility. Electric is generated at 13,800 volts and distributed throughout the Park on a small grid with underground redundant feeds to double-ended load centers/substations for highest reliability and quality of power. Double-ended load centers are designed to provide full load with either feeder out of service. Typical delivery to customers is a nominal 480 volt, three phase alternating current.
CHILLED WATER - 60,000 tons installed capacity of tri-generation utilizing steam driven turbines optimizing total system costs. Nominal supply temperature is 40°F
9°F REFRIGERATION - 2,400 tons installed capacity utilizing steam driven turbines. Nominal supply temperature is 9°F.
COMPRESSED AIR - 47,000 standard cubic feet per minute installed capacity with a nominal gauge pressure of 75 psig and a maximum dewpoint of 55°F.
NITROGEN - 148,000 standard cubic feet per hour installed on-site plant capacity with equivalent capacity of backup liquid vaporizers. Minimum purity is 99.999% with a nominal gauge pressure of 70 psig and a maximum dewpoint of -100°F.
PROCESS WATER - 36,000,000 gallons per day nominal capacity treated at a site owned and operated on the shore of Lake Ontario. The water is pumped to the Park's reservoirs and is backed up with supplies from Monroe County Water Authority and City of Rochester Water Bureau. Process water is provided as a non-transient non-community public water system regulated by New York State Department of Health and meets all Department of Health regulations.
DEMINERALIZED WATER - Treated process water using anion and cation exchangers with maximum conductivity of 4 micromhos.
HIGH-PURITY WATER - 300 gallons per minute firm capacity of reverse osmosis deionized water with a minimum resistivity of 2 megohms.
HAZARDOUS AND NON-HAZARDOUS WASTE DISPOSAL - Comprehensive recycling services as well as hazardous and non-hazardous waste services, provided by Waste Management.
