Florida State University is a growing campus of almost 500 acres in Tallahassee, the state capital. As new buildings come on line the HVAC load to serve those buildings also requires expansion, which is why the school built a new satellite chiller plant in 2008. Located close by the school’s medical school, the new satellite chiller plant comes with Trane supplied chillers, Taco pumps, and a custom built Taco 4900 Series Air-Dirt Separator, the biggest unit Taco has built to date.

The satellite chiller plant is connected to the central energy plant and serves as a "stage" plant to provide chilled water for air conditioning needs on campus. It is connected through a 1 1/2 mile underground piping loop. Equipped with three 1500 ton, 200 hp Trane centrifugal chillers (plus one as backup), the plant also comes with six 200 hp Taco TA pumps, multi-purpose valves, suction diffusers, a CA expansion tank and ABB VFD units to control the pumps.
