ASHRAE Illinois Chapter Tours Enwave Chicago Plant

Fifteen ASHRAE Illinois Chapter members toured Enwave Chicago's Plant 2 at Franklin and Van Buren in early April 2015. Enwave Chicago's Director of Engineering Bill Dolan, an ASHRAE member, conducted the tour of the 23,000-ton cooling plant that has a 125,000 ton-hr ice tank. The plant makes ice at night and then melts and distributes it to customers during the day to meet their air-conditioning needs. ASHRAE Illinois reported that the only drawback of the tour was that the tour group size was limited.

Enwave Chicago's Director of Operations Scott Kenney and Business Development Manager Jim Rylowicz joined the group for the tour, which included a brief description of the system's history and visits to the control room and mechanical rooms.

Please contact Jim Rylowicz if you or your organization would like to tour one of our facilities.
