EWYD-4Z Hotel Pestana Vila Sol, Portugal

Operating flexibility

EWYD4504ZXR. Meeting the needs of applications requiring operating flexibility, as hotels

We caught up with Alexandra Velez, Key Account at Daikin Portugal, to talk about this project. Pestana Group bought a Daikin EWYD4504ZXR unit for Vila Sol Hotel, in Algarve, a 4-star hotel with 140 rooms, conference rooms and public areas.

 

 

Flexible system for both cold and hot water

It all started with a request for a top efficiency unit from the project designer, who performed an energy audit to ensure the client had the highest efficiency. The solution was replacing the existing chiller with a Daikin 4Z. The hotel has different operating needs, so having a flexible system for both cold and hot water at the same time, plus recovery for hot sanitary water, was fundamental. […]

 

Factory testing

We wanted to see the unit tested so we could prove its performance. This chiller, with integrated inverter screw compressor, provides the best efficiency in the market, and it was great having it tested with customers in the factory. […] It was also good for them to see the manufacturing process, and have engineers answering their questions about controls and integration with the different BMS systems.”
