Daikin Applied UK were contracted to supply 6 of the EWAT-B Chiller with full free cooling and hydronic kit. The EWAT-B was chosen primarily for its cost saving at low ambient temperatures using free cooling still achieving the outlined efficiency targets.
The low GWP refrigerant and small footprint of this system were additional factors considered, for longevity and space saving benefits.
“Barclays have high expectations when it comes to indoor air quality, and they have very high expectations of controls. The integration with the building management system is very important. They expect to be able to see and monitor a lot of information to ensure the well-being of their workers… The energy model is based on achieving an EPC of A. Free cooling technology has helped in achieving this goal”.
