Ortho McNeil Pharmaceutical, Raritan, NJ
A Cogeneration project using a reciprocating engine-generator, operating solely on natural gas fuel, plus a heat recovery steam generator. The facility operates base loaded at full capacity in parallel with the utility grid. This combined heat and power plant produces 3.0 MW of 4160V electricity, 4,000 pounds per hour of 125-psig steam and 5.4 Million BTU per hour of hot water for heating. This new facility is located, indoors, within an existing Utility Room at Ortho McNeil Pharmaceutical’s (OMP) facility in Raritan, NJ. OMP is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.
EMCOR provided Engineering, Design and Construction for this 3.0 MW combined heat and power plant. To overcome space limitations, EMCOR converted an indoor space, formerly used for parts storage, and employed a three-level vertical design approach. Careful planning of the design and installation sequencing overcame unique design and rigging challenges imposed by the spatial constraints. By adding a new sound attenuated room, noise infiltration into the existing facility was minimized.
