When General Motors and their contractor Barton Malow needed three 7,500 Ton Chilled Water Plants for expansions at the GM plants in Fort Wayne, IN, Arlington, TX, and Flint, MI, they turned to Climate Technologies and Epsilon to design and fabricate modular central utility chilled water plants.
The chilled water plant shown (GM Fort Wayne) was installed in only two and one-half weeks.
Epsilon’s factory-built concept allowed General Motors and Barton Malow to save millions of dollars through the parallel path manufacturing process.
Using this manufacturing concept, these three plants were designed and delivered in significantly less time and expense as compared to stick building the same facilities on-site.
As a result of the factory-built concept, these projects did not encounter any weather delays, material handling problems, or other slowdowns that typically hamper on-site builds.
Each Epsilon chilled water plant delivered to GM is designed to accommodate future on-site expansion.
