To provide low energy consumption cooling to the leisure centre complex. The complex has a limited power supply capacity, so the solution needed to be very efficient, but still provide full comfort when the centre is fully occupied.
Twelve Climate Wizard air conditioners were installed under the main roof, within the plant room and connected to a manifold and ducts to each zone. A Building Management System (BMS) provides flexibility of control and zone selection. In normal operation, the system operates at a Coefficient of Performance (COP) of around 20 (EER 68.4), compared to the originally proposed alternative refrigerated system, which had a COP of about 3.2 (EER 10.3).
