Woodbine, NJ

Miller-Remick provided engineering and construction management services for the complete renovation and upgrade of the central steam plant that serves the 250 acre, 58 building NJ Dept. of Human Services Woodbine Developmental Center Campus, Woodbine, NJ. The project involved the demolition of three existing D-style watertube boilers, and the installation of a new steam generation plant consisting of one 40,000 lb/hr D-type watertube boiler, two 20,000 lb/hr fire tube boilers and all piping, controls and auxiliaries. All boilers required the design of custom burner assemblies capable of burning natural gas, fuel oil and landfill gas. This landmark project was the first of its kind in the State of NJ to use a renewable energy source (landfill gas) and natural gas while utilizing #2 fuel oil as a backup fuel in a watertube boiler system. The project resulted in a significant increase in efficiency, state-of-the-art air emissions controls, and a long-term commitment to use local landfill gas as an energy source. Miller-Remick’s approach to the design and construction delivered the project on-time, under budget and without interruption of steam delivery to the campus.
