factories

Problem/objective:
The strategic objective of the Philip Morris International company is to decrease power consumption, which is primarily associated with lowering costs and promoting environment-friendly business. Therefore the company was looking for the ways to implement this approach and put it to practice.

An essential part of the total amount of energy consumed by an enterprise is made up of the electricity being consumed by air cooling and conditioning equipment.

Solution:
In 2012, in order to decrease the amounts of energy consumed by cooling equipment and increase the efficiency of such machinery, Philip Morris International has begun fitting the cooling equipment installed at the company’s factories with “Smart cooling ™” adiabatic panels.

The equipment developed and supplied by “Smart cooling ™” ensures considerable energy economy and yields a marked increase in the efficiency of the cooling equipment employed at our factories.

In order to obtain a specific assessment of the yield provided by the “Smart cooling ™” equipment, power consumption was monitored at factory 24 hours a day throughout the entire year. The results of the monitoring are provided below.

Philip Morris factory, Intertaba, Italy (Via Fratelli Rosselli, 4 40069 Zola Predosa (BO)). Two cooling units, chillers, were being monitored: York YCAS 0835EB and York YAES 0785SA.

ROI
5 months

Results:
The results have shown that the average increase in the production of cooling capacity by the unit after the installation of “Smart cooling ™” adiabatic panels, all the other circumstances remaining constant, is 35%, whereas the average decrease in power consumption is 37%.

Considering such efficiency, the return on investment (ROI) period for the “Smart cooling ™” adiabatic panels at PMI factory is up to 5 months (i.e. one season).


HOTELS

Client: Priemier Palace 5 star Hotel

hotels

Problem:
During the last 3 years in summer the outside air temperature reaches +35 to +37°C. Given such air temperature, the cooling devices of the building lack cooling power. At the outside air temperature of +35°C, the cooling devices work with maximum cooling power, resulting in a continuous cycle of compressors and causing overload of the compressors. The load of the electrical networks is also significantly increased, which results in the shortage of electrical power.

The energy consume of the cooling device TRANE RTAC 217 installed at the hotel during the summer period from May to September is increased by 32%, which significantly increases the operational costs of the hotel.

Total cooling power Q= 3,400 Kw. Cooling devices: 6 chillers TRANE RTAC 217.

Solution: Priemier Palace equipped 6 cooling devices TRANE RTAC 217 with adiabatic panels “Smart cooling ™”.

ROI
8 months

Result:
The Technical director of the Priemier Palace informs that after the installation of the with adiabatic panels “Smart Cooling“:

  • power of the cooling devices (in the hot period) has increased by 29%;
  • the energy consume has decreased by 24%;
  • cooling devices are operating under regular mode, the operational cycle of the compressors is shortened, the compressors are not overloaded.

Operational principle:
The adiabatic panel of Blue Energy ensures reduction of the incoming air temperature of the cooling devices by 10 – 15°C compared to the outside air temperature.

Such cooling of the air flowing into the cooling device significantly improved the efficiency of the devices TRANE RTAC 217, since energy savings were achieved (the device requires less electrical energy to produce the required cooling power).

The return on investment period (ROI) of the installed “Smart cooling ™” devices (adiabatic panels) = 8 months.


HALLS

ice-hals

Client: Arena Riga (Ice Arena)
Ice hockey arena Riga of the Continental ice-hockey league, 13 000 spectator places.

Problem/setting: During the summer when the outside air temperature reaches + 25°C, the cooling devices lack cooling power. The cooling devices are operating with maximum power, resulting in a continuous compressor cycle – the compressors are overloaded and the electrical energy consume is significantly increased. To ensure the ice ring temperature of the Ice-hockey arena, additional cooling power is needed.

Total cooling power Q= 556kw.
Chiller York YCAA, dry cooler Alfa Laval.

Solution:
In order to increase the efficiency of the cooling devices and to reduce the energy consume in the cooling devices, the engineers and the management of the ice-hockey arena made the decision to install the adiabatic panels “Smart cooling ™”. The “Smart cooling ™” devices were installed in 2012.

ROI
9 months

Result:
The chief engineer of the ice-hockey arena informs that after installation of the adiabatic panels “Smart cooling ™”, the heat exchange of the cooling device YORK and the dry cooler Alfa Laval has significantly improved, the chillers are working efficiently event at critical outside air temperature of +35°C.

The cooling devices are working under regular mode, the operational cycle of the compressors is shortened, the compressors are not overloaded.

Operational principle:
Before the outside air gets into the condenser, the adiabatic panels “Smart cooling ™” perform pre-cooling of the air. The adiabatic panels ensure reduction of the incoming air temperature of the condensers of the cooling devices by 10 – 15°C below to the outside air temperature.
This results in significantly increased efficiency of YORK YCAA – possibility as been found to produce the required scope of the cooling power, as well as significantly save on electrical energy.
