II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: Remove & Replace (2) 150 Ton York Screw Chillers
17. Project Justification: 1) Since R22 will no longer be manufactured or imported into the US after December 31, 2019, and because replacement refrigerant will be very expensive if even found, the intent is to prepare a program (CIP) to fund the replacement of any existing R22 charged equipment with new equipment running on approved refrigerants. Note: Each York chiller runs 620 lbs of R22 gas. 2) Two York Millennium Chillers Model #YSCABBSO-CFDYork Chillers may be close to the end of life cycle @ 18+ years of age (Mgf. Sept. 1999 / Installed in Year 2000).
18. Project Background Information: Our agency received an email from Thomas P. Federici, P.E. for R22 equipment replacement. Project Manager, Planning Nevada State Public Works Division 515 E. Musser St., Suite 102 Carson City, Nevada 89701-4263 Tel: (775) 684-4125 Email:
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: York Millennium Screw Chillers 480v
19b. Year existing equipment was installed: 2000
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: York
19d. Model of existing equipment: Model #YSCABBSO-CFD,
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? Yes
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.): R22 refrigerant
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? No
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): R22 refrigerant is a necessary component for chiller operation. Chillers are necessary to cool the building during summer season.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
22. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): Chiller Retrofit is necessary to meet the EPA 12-31-19 requirement to phase out sales of R22 refrigerant.
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
23a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time?
23b. Explain: Project must be completed during winter months. Outdoor temperatures must be below 65 degrees F. to maintain cool temperatures indoors using fresh air & air handlers only.
23c. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project?
23d. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? March 2020
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? Agency Notice from Thomas P. Federici, P.E. Project Manager, Planning Nevada State Public Works Division 515 E. Musser St., Suite 102 Carson City, Nevada 89701-4263 Tel: (775) 684-4125 Email:
