The project utilized four (4) 65 kW microturbines, backup power for select critical systems and thermal recovery for boiler feedwater and domestic hot water. The space constraints for equipment installation in an aged historic building and rigging hurdles from congested Manhattan streets added unique complexity and challenges. Fellow ENGIE MEP subsidiary Trystate Mechanical did a stellar job managing the high-profile project.

This sound green investment delivers over $200,000 energy savings per year, is eligible for grid revenue streams and was one of the only buildings in NYC to remain fully operational during the 2020 partial NYC blackout, ensuring tenant comfort, safety and security.
