Hillsborough County Government

We’re making a mess tearing up the streets in downtown Tampa… and we apologize. This construction work is part of a large Performance Contract entered into by Trane and Hillsborough County Government. Stephen Koontz, TBT Solutions Sales Engineer and Steve Van Skiver, TBT Solutions Project Manager along with Robert Garcia, TBT’s Vice President of Business Development are responsible for the complete scope of this project.

Tampa Bay Trane is teamed with Clark Construction, Poole & Kent, and TLC Consulting Engineers to expand Hillsborough County Government’s Chiller Plant and its under ground piping distribution system. A new fifteen hundred (1,500) ton Trane Centravac is being added to the Chiller plant along with 84 Calmac ice storage tanks. The project not only expands the capacity of the Chiller Plant but also insures that the Plant will operate at far lower costs because much of the load will be shifted to making ice at night when electric rates are lower.
