Geothermal design and innovative approach allow for many benefits at the Portland Jetport
saved in capital cost
Up to $300,000
saved in annual fuel costs
of emissions reduced annually
- Haley & Aldrich’s geotechnical team designed a new geothermal/ground source heat exchanger system to heat and cool the new terminal the Portland International Jetport needed to accommodate a 50% increase in passenger volume.
- Our innovative approach involved applying new geothermal design and sizing techniques to optimize the system, reducing its size by 25% without sacrificing emissions reduction, which saved the client $3.3 million compared to the original design.
- By achieving a significant emissions reduction, the client won a grant worth $2.53 million, allowing them to pay back the system capital costs in under five years.
