UWindsor celebrates installation of first-in-Canada electric-steam turbine chiller


The University of Windsor recently celebrated the installation of a dual drive, electric-steam turbine chiller, which will heat and cool buildings on campus. The chiller uses electricity and steam energy to minimize natural gas usage and is part of UWindsor’s plans to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It is estimated that the system will save UWindsor over $1M annually. “It’s one of the largest campus sustainability initiatives we have ever undertaken as a university and I’m also proud to say that it’s the first of its kind of any university in all of Canada,” said UWindsor President Robert Gordon.
