The Department of Defense DoD owns a large number of aging district heating systems, typically consisting of a central heat plant CHP and a heat distribution system. Many of these systems are nearing the end of their useful life, and incur significant maintenance and repair costs to keep them operational. This study focused on the CHP at the Defense Supply Center Columbus DSCC, Columbus, OH to help the installation meet long-term goals of reduced energy consumption and improved air quality. Condition assessment surveys were done at the DSCC CHP. Researchers evaluated the current state of the system, provided a list of modernization options, and proposed a modernization plan.
