RED-Rochester, LLC supplies the energy for the Eastman Business Park in Rochester, NY. Eastman Business Park is a 1,200-acre industrial campus with more than 16 million square feet of multi-scale manufacturing, distribution, lab and office space, interstate rail and highway access. Specifically Red Rochester, LLC provides the business park with energy through five new clean-burning natural gas-fired boilers, recently retiring all of the coal-fired operations in the park

Because of help from RED-Rochester, LLC, the park is now entirely coal-free for the first time in more than 127 years, and CO2 emissions have been reduced by 50 percent

RED-Rochester, LLC currently supplies 110 customers in the Eastman Business Park through a unique suite of 16 utility services. To help effectively and efficiently control the output of energy to the park, RED-Rochester, LLC turned to Winsted for a needed update to their control room.

“Our existing room was from the 60s, and the current furniture needed an upgrade,” said Ken Gerew, Senior Project Manager, RED-Rochester, LLC. “We also needed to consolidate everything in the same room.”

With consolidation and efficiency in mind, Winsted proceeded to retrofit the control room space with a series of Impulse Dual Sit/Stand consoles. The consoles provided an ergonomic update to the furniture, giving operators the freedom to easily adjust their desks to a sitting or standing position. The room layout was improved, having the consoles form a “U” shape around a conference table.

With improved furniture and layout, RED-Rochester, LLC’s new control room embodies the forward-thinking mindset of the energy provider. As RED-Rochester, LLC continues to make strides in clean energy. It will do so with a control room of operators working on state-of-the-art equipment to help the energy provider run as efficiently as possible.
