Subsequent phases will incorporate the replacement of a failing steam condensate return system with a protected durable condensate return - essential for greater heating capacity and flexibility as well as the introduction of a complete combined heat and power system with auxiliary boilers for redundant heat capacity. Additionally, Siemens will provide vital operations, maintenance, repair and replacement services as appropriate throughout the life cycle of the project.
