Europe’s first installation of a water-cooled screw chiller using new PUREtec HFO-1234ze refrigerant has been completed
Two Carrier AquaForce water-cooled screw chillers using new PUREtec HFO-1234ze refrigerant (GWP 7) have been installed as part of the Plan-les-Ouates district heating project in Geneva, Switzerland.
The first phase of the mixed-use real estate development project in Plan-les-Ouates uses recovery and re-use of waste heat from adata centre onsite, providing heating to local offices and other facilities.
As part of the second phase, the extended installation is expected to provide heating to 3,000 individual homes within a planned residential zone.
This project represents Europe’s first district heating project based on a water-cooled screw chiller using the new HFO-1234ze refrigerant compliant with thenew F-Gas regulation.
