We worked with the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney to upgrade their mechanical plant room which dated back to 1981. A core part of the upgrade was the installation of two Quantum chillers, which resulted in initial savings of 23% in electricity costs alone.
We worked with design engineers in Germany to develop new generation, high-efficiency compact chillers tailored for the retrofit market, in particular where crane expenses normally add significant costs to a project.
The chiller components were designed to fit the hotel’s goods lift size and weight limitations, saving more than $150,000 a day in crane costs that would have been required using a traditional replacement program. The innovative chiller design also allows the evaporator and condenser vessels to be transported in the lift, without the need for split vessels, removing the risk of costly repairs for leaking gaskets during the life of the chillers.
