Central Plant Upgrades

METCO offers reliable services for uninterrupted power generation that is cost-effective and eco-friendly. Through skilled craftsmanship and years of experience, we successfully provide durable Central Plant Upgrades to meet increasing energy demands.

What are Central Plants?

A Central Plant offers a combined energy source to multiple buildings surrounding the vicinity of the Plant. The plant includes:

  • Boilers
  • Chillers
  • Thermal storage
  • Cogeneration system
  • Electrical wires and pipelines
  • Monitoring and management systems

Central plants are cost-efficient and easy to maintain. They produce renewable energy on large-scale which is supplied to multiple buildings. These plants are designed to preserve energy and increase the supply during peak hours which in turn reduces utility bills, power outage, and exhausted resources. Non-renewable resources such as fossil fuels are depleting fast as they are still one of the main sources of energy production.

A central plant serves as a heating and/or cooling medium to several buildings such as university campuses, hospitals, and multi-purpose medical centers.

How Does a Central Plant Operate?

The basic mechanism of the Central Plant System is pretty straightforward; however, it serves multiple buildings at one time.

Step 1:

In a boiler or CHP system, thermal energy is converted into electricity and is distributed in the building through pipelines in the form of steam or hot water.

Step 2:

the fuel is converted into energy in large chillers or steam turbine and is then distributed as chilled water or brine through pipes.

Why do Central Plants need Upgrades?

For meeting infrastructure expansion, and increased demand for electricity and thermal energy, the Central Plants need to be upgraded accordingly. The modification results in improved thermal comfort, better indoor air quality, and effective management of electricity distribution.

Benefits of Central Plants

Stable control

Customized designs and internal control sensors match differential-pressure demands thus giving stable control to the end user.

Simplified Integration

Renewable resources power modern Central Plants for sustainable power and thermal energy generation.


Reduces maintenance cost as lesser components are installed compared to individual utility plants.


The chilled water systems use a closed circuit of distribution and return pipelines sealing them from environmental exposure to mitigate chances of corrosion and contamination.
