- UCSF Mission Bay Hospital Fuel OIl System: Case Study
The UCSF Medical Center in the Mission Bay area of San Francisco required a new Central Energy Plant integral to the new 800,000 SF Hospital. The central plant included 3 generators of 2 MW capacity located on the building roof, and a set of boilers located on the upper floor. Fuel is stored in 2 underground storage tanks of 40,000 gallon capacity.
The Earthsafe integrated solution included C900 Master Controls, pump controllers, day tanks, and boiler feed tanks. All fuel system data was integrated via BACnet to the larger facility management system.
Special challenges included OSHPD Seismic Compliance and California EPA rules for positive leak monitoring of underground fuel storage tanks.
