Morristown Medical Center: Reduced Carbon Emissions, Increased Steam Production

After being hit by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, MMC management was determined to improve the facility’s power resiliency. The hospital wanted to pursue cogeneration (CHP), but its electrical system needed an upgrade first. Eleven transformers had to be replaced, and a central power plant design needed to be developed as the electrical infrastructure was spread throughout the campus. It took a few years to finalize the plan and obtain funding for the $23 million 


To improve medical center power resiliency, reduce carbon emissions and increase steam production efficiency. 


Installed Cleaver-Brooks Heat Recovery Steam Generator as part of new Combined Heat and Power plant; customized VC Series boiler to fit in roof opening.


Reduced carbon emissions by 4,200 tons and utility net costs by $2.2 million annually while maximizing facility power resiliency.

"A reduced carbon footprint and saving money are two benefits of switching to a CHP system"

Patrick Burke, Director of Engineering, Morristown Medical Center
