46 Boiler Arriving in Rochester

Some big pieces of equipment have made their way to Eastman Business Park as new natural gas boilers will replace the original coal boilers at RED-Rochester. Delivered from where they were built in Oklahoma, they arrived late at night so they wouldn’t clog local roadways. They traveled on their sides and had to be turned upright…carefully.

The four new boilers will produce steam, electricity, and chilled water for the park. The new gas power plant will cut CO2 emissions by 50% while being more efficient and cost effective.
