Who here remembers the old, World Trade Center Refrigeration Plant which formerly served, the twin towers, the subway, the shopping concourse, as well as the sister buildings.
I remember hearing this was the largest refrigeration plant ( on 2.5 acres) in the world with seven York refrigeration machines the size of a locomotive, which used river water from the Hudson.
Could anyone give me some more insight as to how this system worked, and the specifics involved? Better yet, if anyone ever had the opportunity to visit I would love to hear about it.
Thanks for your time and interest, huge systems like this fascinate me. Its very interesting to see the innovative technology and engineering that goes into operating and designing such a system.
