Northeast Health Wangaratta

Background

Northeast Health Wangaratta is responsible for providing an extensive range of healthcare services to the broader community across North East Victoria (Australia). Geoclima was commissioned to supply a chiller dedicated to operating theatres.

Purposes

The project had to satisfy a number of important requirements: on the one hand to ensure reliability and efficiency in a critical environment such as the operating theatres; on the other hand, because NHW considers environmental sustainability and energy saving as key points of their vision and corporate social responsibility.

Project

So Geoclima has designed, manufactured and tested a 640 kW (182 RT) air-cooled Turbomiser chiller with oil-free centrifugal compressors. The unit was equipped with the Evaporative System to increase the overall energy efficiency, with compressor boxes to ensure adequate levels of silence and a dual (duty/standby) VSD pump kit.

Results

The outcome is a highly efficient and reliable system capable of guaranteeing a COP level of 3.62.
