Cool-Therm opens new Southern office to serve growing London and Home Counties chiller demand

Chiller and air conditioning specialist Cool-Therm has opened a new South of England office to serve the expanding London, South East and Home Counties market.

Chiller and air conditioning specialist Cool-Therm has opened a new South of England office to serve the expanding London, South East and Home Counties market.

Headed by Steve Soffe, Southern region manager, the new branch is located at East Malling Business Centre.

The Bristol headquartered company now operates five branches across the UK, with East Malling joining Cardiff, Reading, Birmingham and Manchester.

The new branch has already won over of £1.5m-worth of chiller orders, including orders for nine Turbomiser chillers for a data centre; three Turbomisers for a commercial building; two bespoke ‘ultra low-noise’ chillers for a residential development; and a chiller for a Hilton Hotel in central London.

Ken Strong, managing director of Cool-Therm, said: “London and some surrounding areas are undergoing something of a mini-boom, with significant opportunities for both new and replacement air conditioning projects. Multi-storey developments planned for the former industrial areas alongside the Thames are particularly exciting, as they include both high-end residential apartments and associated retail and leisure developments, all requiring air conditioning.”

The company has recently developed an ultra-low noise version of its already-quiet Turbomiser, capable of operating down to 51 dBA at 10m, making it one of the quietest chillers in the world, Mr Strong said.

It features Cool-Therm’s new Hush-Tec technology, which uses noise attenuating towers positioned over each condenser fan, lead-insulated refrigerant discharge lines, and full acoustic encapsulation of compressors.

Mr Strong added: “The sound of birds singing in a field in the countryside is can be louder than the new Hush-Tec equipped Turbomisers. This is quite an achievement, and lends itself to inner city high-end residential apartments and office developments where noise is a critical factor.”
