Culver Military Academy, located in Culver, Indiana, is in the process of installing a cogeneration system. Ballard Engineering of Rockford, Illinois has designed and will install the cogeneration system for the college using two (2) 525 kw generators.
Charles Equipment Company, the local Waukesha distributor, is providing two (2) 525 kw Waukesha Model VHP3600GSI Enginators which will operate continuously at 1050 kw using 130°F intercooler water. The ebulliently cooled Enginators will be producing low pressure steam using Maxim steam generators. These will be integrated into a new boiler system, consisting of two (2) 400 hp boilers, Ballard is installing. The Waukesha Enginators can be operated intermittently at 575 kw. This additional available power provides increased system flexibility.
The new plant will operate 24 hrs/day, 7 days/week. Joe Sinclair of Ballard Engineering said the system is expected to be on line and fully operational in November of 1996.
