Thermax Chillers in the US and Europe
15 May 2014

Over the last decade Thermax has installed more than 450 vapour absorption chillers in US and Europe, which have the biggest cogeneration markets in the world. Thermax will supply four chillers worth USD 1.3 mn, for a combined heat, power and cooling (CHPC) project at Fort Knox military base in the US. Four vapour absorption chillers of 22 70 TR (7970 k W), triggered by waste heat and water, will cool a hospital, Human Resource Centre and an exchange building in the premise. The project is a part of the national energy security project implemented by the US army that will also conserve resources. The system integrates renewable energy, grid power, energy storage and load management to guarantee uninterrupted power in adverse conditions. In Europe, Thermax will cool an upcoming facility in Hungary for Lego, the world’s fourth largest toy maker. At the facility is situated near the Ukranian border, reliable power availability is a major concern. Three multi-energy powered absorption chillers of 1830 TR (6425 kW) will utilise waste heat from the exhaust and jacket water of a 2.6 MW GE Jenbacher gas engine to cool Lego’s energy and environment friendly plant. The Italian city of Bologna makes use of two hot water fired chillers for comfort cooling – a 398 TR machine at its Centrale railway station, and a 259 TR system at the Guglielmo Marconi international airport.
