LINDT & SPRUNGLI CHILLED WATER PLANT
Lindt retained B2Q to complete a detailed economic and feasibility study then to lead the comprehensive design and installation of a turnkey modular high-efficiency chilled water plant sized to support future production.
B2Q oversaw the design, specification, bidding, installation, start-up, testing, and commissioning of the 2,500-ton cooling plant upgrade. B2Q evaluated the feasibility and economics of multiple options with varying efficiencies, configurations, and cost. To evaluate the new chillers, B2Q developed 3D models using eQuest software to evaluate three water-cooled chiller options consisting of multiple manufacturers. B2Q oversaw the fabrication, design, and installation of the new chiller plant and piping network, which included pipe stress analysis using CAESAR II modeling software. B2Q coordinated with structural engineers on the new piping load as well as thermal expansion requirements. A phasing plan for replacement was also created using Revit BIM software to reduce production downtime.
B2Q successfully assisted Lindt with their factory expansion with a detail-oriented strategy built on collaboration and engineering principals while leading innovative advancements in energy efficiency. The new cooling plant was installed, commissioned, and fully operational within a challenging three-week summer shut down time frame!
