Project Summary: Anadarko-Allison Tower

Anadarko-Allison Tower, a 16-story office building in The Woodlands, TX, recently received a $39,801 incentive from the Entergy Texas Commercial Solutions Program to help fund an energy-efficient overhaul of their chiller system.

The upgrades included replacing the motor bearings, re-gasketing the chiller, and repairing the first- and second-stage vane assemblies. A Tracer AdaptiView™ control panel and an adaptive frequency drive were also installed to bring the system in line with modern energy efficiency capabilities.

All told, the project has reduced the equipment’s average peak demand by an estimated 241 kW and is expected to extend the useful life of the chiller by 20–25 years.
