Carrier chills Battersea district heating and cooling scheme

Carrier Rental Systems has supplied chillers and heating plant for a major district cooling and heating scheme in Battersea, London

The project involved the supply of some 40 chillers and 20 electric boilers to provide temporary heating, domestic hot water and cooling for hundreds of premium apartments.

The project is part of a redevelopment of the iconic Battersea site located alongside the River Thames in central London.

As well as residential apartments, the eight building multi-storey tower development includes parking, retail and leisure facilities, served by a district heating and cooling scheme, providing underfloor heating, hot water and air conditioning.

To fulfil the year-long contract, Carrier Rental Systems invested in a fleet of Carrier AquaSnap chillers, each rated at 160kW and operating on high efficiency R407C refrigerant, along with new electric boilers, each rated at 300kW.

The equipment is housed in a basement area alongside the site’s permanent plant rooms and connected to the piped services mains for the district heating and cooling scheme.

Once the development project is complete in Spring 2016, the temporary plant will be decommissioned and disconnected and the permanent heating and cooling systems will be switched on seamlessly.

Affiliate brand Carrier has won the contract to supply the new chillers for the scheme.

“The project is designed to enable the developers to start marketing and selling apartments and support early occupancy, with full services,” said Simon Ward, key account manager, Carrier Rental Systems.

“Both Carrier Rental Systems and Carrier were selected for this project. Few brands have the combination of scale and specialised plant hire capabilities to deliver on such a significant contract.”
