Central Utility Plant

Behind the Scenes, Felt Everywhere

This modern facility will be working behind the scenes to support our long-term growth and enhance our customers’ comfort and travel experience from parking to takeoff and everywhere between.

Not only will this new equipment and modern facility replace aging equipment, this new, 21,550-square-foot central utility plant is also expected to reduce the airport’s overall energy consumption.


New equipment includes advanced heating, cooling and electrical capabilities as well as onsite and portable emergency power backups.
