First Carrier AquaForce Chillers using HFO-1234ze

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.

  • The GWP of HFO-1234ze is not 7 but .
    Reference : http://www.fluorocarbons.org/chemical-families/hfos quoring the IPCC 5th Assessment Report.
    It is strange that Carrier is still using an outdated value.
