New cooling system to help school become ‘green’

The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science recently completed a new chiller plant, which is a cooling system, as a replacement to the older, less efficient ammonia ice plants.

The new cooling system is part of the university’s plan to be more “green,” and has saved roughly 30 percent in energy since the beginning of January.

The plant currently cools approximately 300,000 feet of research labs, offices and classrooms.
