Stellar Energy Expands Process Cooling Capacity for Biotech-leader Novozymes

Stellar Energy, a global provider of energy solutions, will provide design and fabrication of a modular chiller plant for Novozymes, a leader in industrial biotechnology and bio-innovation.  The modular chilled water system is designed to expand Novozyme's existing process cooling water capacity, providing an additional 2200 TR.  The system includes the combination of a modular chilled water plant constructed at Stellar Energy's fabrication facility with factory packaged cooling towers and process water pumps installed at the Novozyme's plant.  The project is slated for completion in June 2013.

Stellar Energy has worked with Novozymes on several projects over the years, including providing several modular chiller plants, designed to expand the company's cooling capacity for various demands as loads increase. "Modular chiller plants are a smart, economical solution designed to improve energy efficiency and provide scalability and flexibility" says Kurt Peninger, Senior Vice President, Stellar Energy Americas.

With more than 20 years experience, Stellar Energy has delivered more than 850,000 tons of refrigeration (TR) of chilled water plant solutions worldwide. The company's state-of-the-art water-cooled modular chiller plants are fabricated in its own Jacksonville, Florida facility.

As opposed to traditional field-erected construction, modular construction involves the fabrication and assembly of systems and components in a quality-controlled fabrication facility. Once completed, the chiller plant is pre-packed, shipped and assembled on site. The factory build approach, free of the setbacks of inclement weather, offers several benefits, including a shortened construction schedule, improved safety, lower capital and operating costs, greater construction quality control and reduced project risk, to name a few.
