During exceptionally high summer ambient temperatures the existing three 1 mw critical chillers had multiple circuit failures and were unable to maintain the chilled water services.
Replacement 1 mw chillers had a 12 week delivery period and were not available in sufficient time to provide the critical cooling required. Chilled water cooling was maintained to the client’s critical services without any disruption to the client’s business as usual.
The temporary chillers were retained for a sufficient period to ensure system resilience and each phase was soft landed to the site FM team. The serviceable life of the existing chillers has been extended and the temporary connections left in place to provide future temporary connections.
This strategy has provided the client sufficient time to review options and assign CAPEX for the future chiller replacement project.
