We are working on a large project which has 10 customized Chillers each chiller over 2,000 tons.

When I model the baseline, the total cooling capacity is 32,000 tons which comes down to 40 chillers per Appendix G Table G3.1.3.7. Perhaps is there any exemption we might apply? We find a bit odd to model 40 chillers.

In my personal opinion, there is no exception to G3.1.3.7 in any version of 90.1 that has been published. It is odd to have to model 40 chillers but, I believe, that is the result of cooling capacity you found for your baseline.
