|Brief Project Description||
A twelve collector drain back system preheats 600 gallons of domestic water for the airport. The collectors are arranged as two arrays of six collectors. There are five storage tanks with internal, double-wall heat exchangers. A recirculation line distributes the preheated water to four water heaters that are strategically located throughout the facility, serving restrooms and a restaurant. The water heaters are a mixture of electric and natural gas fired units. Energy monitoring is expected to be operational in early 2011.
Kiosk displays are planned in the terminal and gate areas to inform the public about the technology and demonstrate energy savings. Detailed monitoring will be available to the airport maintenance team by logging into the monitoring service provider.
