New Chiller installed in the A-wing

SMARDT Air Cooled Chiller

Date: July 2018

Details:  A new and highly efficient magnetic bearing chiller was installed to replace the existing A-Wing chiller. The new chiller uses less energy since it can operate without oil, which reduces the energy loss from friction and increases the heat transfer efficiency. The chiller provides cooling for the air handling units which provide 24/7 ventilation and cooling to all five floors in the A-Wing.

Greening impact:

  • Energy saved: approximately 65,000 kWh per year
  • Incentive applied from SaveONenergy program, evaluation in progress
