Olsun Case Study - The University of Wisconsin Whitewater Chiller Plant Expansion

When the University of Wisconsin Whitewater needed to expand their campus chiller plant and utilities, they turned to Olsun Electrics for help. The multi-phase project includes comprehensive utility corridor improvements for the north and central campus, an addition to the heating and chiller plant, as well as dorm utility improvements. The added capacity of the new chiller plant will exceed their current energy needs, and allow for UWW’s continued expansion. The contemporary design and liberal use of glass allows the building to break away from the traditional back-of-house utility plant and become a prominent campus icon. Olsun helped power this expansion, supplying UWW with dry type substation transformers and load interrupter switches.
