Our path to decarbonization

Our electrification strategy in Baltimore will utilize a combination of heat pumps and electric boilers, depending upon the unique operational and regulatory considerations in the city.

Electrification progress


We are exploring the development of industrial-scale heat pumps and electric boilers to be installed at several of our Baltimore facilities.

Preventative maintenance in Baltimore​

Vicinity’s comprehensive maintenance services are offered year-round—during peak usage or before system turn-ons—to optimize steam efficiency, reliability, and cost savings.

Ensure steam traps function correctly and prevent issues that can lead to energy waste, equipment damage, and safety hazards.

Pressure Regulating Valves (PRVs)

Prevent system over-pressurization and relief valves from releasing steam into the atmosphere.


Reduce rust and pipe scale damage to valves and pumps. Ensure heat transfer surfaces are kept free of efficiency reducing deposits.

Ensure efficient operation of the exchangers, tube bundles are not leaking, and that city water is not entering the system through such leaks.

Steam pipe

Deliver safe and reliable steam into the building while reducing potential for steam emissions into the building.

Condensate return line 

Avoid condensate water spills, ensure proper evacuation of condensate from system lines, and identify the presence of leaking steam traps in the system.

Confirm adequate operation of key energy transfer equipment, such as heat exchangers, which supply building heat, hot water, or other process loads.

Seasonal and maintenance shutdowns/turn-ons 

Prevent pipes from rotting and prepare systems to be dormant for an extended period by draining the systems for shutdowns.
