Objectif : replacement of 8 cooling towers divided in divided in 3 loops. Each loop was cooling Plate Heat Exchangers (in order to avoid glycol on the primary side) and then a cooling network inside a shopping mall through heat pumps in each shop.
Unibail-Rodamco Arkadia site was looking for a very safe winter use with a variable cooling duty and also an easy operation and maintenance and has had a special care for the lowest possible power consumptions. One of the main concerns was also to avoid any risk of Legionnaire’s disease.
JACIR supplied 16 Topaz adiabatic coolers. All the project has been managed within a few months thanks to a strong partnership between all parties involved, from Jacir teams to the end user Arkadia shopping mall, (Artelia) designer, Polonez (general contractor), helicopter company (Avibex & Techmont). It took only 3 months from the order to the operation start of the 1st coolers to run.
