Northeast Health Wangaratta


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.


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.


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.


The outcome is a highly efficient and reliable system capable of guaranteeing a COP level of 3.62 (W/W*).

Cooling kW/RT = 0.97 – Cooling EER BTU/Wh = 12.35
