Durst appoints N.K. Engineers for their West Side CyberCenter.
"The Durst Organization has worked diligently to develop projects that work with and not against the environment without sacrificing utility," said Mr. Kapur. "The high-availability power plant at NYCyberCenter is a giant step forward for the developer, since it combines the latest turbine technology, maximum efficiency and the lowest emissions possible. It is also a state-of-the-art plant for the times."
The 42MW co-generation facility at the NYCyberCenter, located on 57th Street between 11th and 12th Avenues in Manhattan, will offer 100 watts per-square-foot of uninterrupted electric power with 99.9999% availability at the tenant's' premises, delivered at the CBEMA (computer-grade electric) standard. To maximize efficiency and reduce environmental impact, heat from the power generating process will be utilized to produce chilled water, which will cool the occupied space within the property. This system is unparalleled in quality and availability, negating any need for tenants to install their own UPS's, batteries, diesel generators and chillers. "The chilled water system has been given the same level of care as the electric system," according to Robert Jorgensen, the principal mechanical engineer. "Its' availability matches that of the electric system."
N.K. Engineers has already designed the electrical and mechanical configurations as well as the overall layout and equipment selection for the high-availability power facility at NYCyberCenter. As the development of NYCyberCenter moves. forward, N.K. Engineers will be monitoring the detailed design as well as ensuring that all equipment is in compliance with all technical specifications.
