US Chiller Services has been awarded full O&M of the Empire State Building. Dan Mizesko, Managing Partner of Al Shirawi US Chiller Services, confirmed this and said that the scope of the agreement includes maintaining a mix of electric-driven VFD centrifugal chillers, steam- turbine-driven centrifugal chillers and oil-less, magnetic-driven centrifugal chillers as well as the entire chilled water plant and ancillaries. Mizesko added that, equally as important, they are also tasked with “achieving energy (electricity, steam and water) reductions and efficiencies”. The contract’s start date, he said, was on July 1, 2017 and features a five-year agreement.

Mizesko shared that US Chiller Services has entered into a joint-venture agreement with New York-based HVAC specialist, The BP Group, to offer the full range of HVAC services for large- tonnage chillers and equipment to an expanded client portfolio in the New York City tri-state area. “The new joint venture,” he said, “will offer an independent alternative solution to the large-tonnage market in the New York metro area, inclusive of New Jersey, Westchester and Connecticut from the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) currently dominating this market area.” He emphasised that the portfolio of services and energy solutions offered by US Chiller Services, combined with The BP Group’s strong reputation in client services, is the “key to the future success of US Chiller Services NY”.

Mizesko said that the new development is a “watershed moment” for the company in New York. “It means everything to us,” he said. “To be frank, the Empire State Building is without question, the most iconic building in the world. When we met with the Empire State Building, the key factors that they wanted to achieve were reliability and energy savings. This is our whole focus at US Chiller Services. So, after almost a year of due diligence, we were selected as the service provider for Operation and Maintenance of the Chilled Water Plant. Our experience in Operation and Maintenance of some of the largest and most sophisticated chilled water plants in the world allowed us to differentiate ourselves from any competition.”

He said that the company is looking forward to delivering to the Empire State Building the “savings and reliability that we assured them we would provide and that a facility of this stature deserves”.
