The University of Texas at Dallas: A 40-Year Partnership

Win-Sam has more than doubled the lifespan of much of UTD’s energy equipment.

The Problem

It was 1973. Enrollment at the once small University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) had surpassed 3,000, and the university needed a robust energy plant. Unfortunately, the university was still working to acquire funding.

The Win-Sam Solution

Win-Sam designed and built the UTD Central Energy Plant (CEP), retaining ownership while the university purchased steam and chilled water directly from us.

“I don’t know that the organization could have survived without some leadership in this.”
-Dr. Francis S. Johnson, Former UT Dallas Acting President

By 1978, enrollment topped 5,300, and the UT System was officially able to purchase the plant from Win-Sam. We stayed on to provide staff and expertise as a third-party operator.

The Partnership Today

UTD has grown into a major four-year university with more than 20,000 students and approximately 710 acres. Win-Sam, still a partner, now works with the UT Office of Facilities Planning and Construction to manage:

• 7 chillers, providing 12,530 tons of refrigeration
• 4 boilers, providing 140,500 pounds per hour boiler capacity
• 1 engine generator set, providing 3,500 Kilowatts electricity
• All ancillary equipment

Predict. Prevent. Extend.

Win-Sam’s proactive 24/7/365 management has resulted in reliability, efficiency and longevity far above the industry average. In over 40 years of continuous partnership with the University of Texas, we have significantly increased the service life of plant equipment (doubling the service life of most major plant equipment.) and kept plant efficiencies well ahead of stated OEM declination rates.

Can you say the same about your central energy plant? If not, give us a call.

Our growth will always be very strategic. We look for great partnerships where we can make a difference.”
