The IWA is for the design, build, installation, checkout, and startup of a closed-loop cooling tower system at B-2; the cooling system is to provide cooling water to all of the facility vacuum components. TFOME performed the build-up, installation, checkout, and startup of the system with SLI oversight. The cooling water system is an automatic system with minimal control necessary from B-2, which can be started and stopped remotely. Considerations to prevent system freezing are a major driver of the design, as the customer requests that no antifreeze mixture be used and that heat tracing/pipe insulation to be avoided, if at all possible.
