Green Mountain College: Biomass Plant

Poultney, Vermont

Project Type: Education
  • OWNER: Green Mountain College
  • ARCHITECT: Smith, Alvarez, Sienkiewycz, Architects

The existing central heating plant (#6 fuel oil) was replaced as the primary heating system for the campus by a biomass plant. The project included $1.3 million in Chiptec biomass 400hp boiler equipment and a 150kw steam turbine.

The site work was challenging as the footings were below the water table and included removal of oil contaminated soils in a tight location requiring shoring. Also included was upgrading some of the equipment in the existing boiler room system.
