Project Files: Chiller Plants
Installation: 46 York water-cooled chiller units.
Completion: May 2008
Customer: Qatar Cool
Objective: Reduce the amount of ozone depleting substances and increase efficiency at the world’s largest district cooling chiller plant.
Description: Qatar Cool, the district cooling authority for the Pearl Island of Qatar in the Arabian Gulf, signed a contract with Johnson Controls Inc. to receive 46 water-cooled chiller units with an option to purchase six more. This is the largest single order for chiller units in the company’s history. Each Johnson Controls York centrifugal chiller unit will be shipped from San Antonio, Texas, to Qatar, and installed in the world’s largest district cooling chiller plant. The facility will supply 130,000 tons of chilled water daily to cool more than 15,000 residential and commercial units, providing comfort to the 40,000 Pearl-Qatar residents. “The plant into which these units will be installed will not be duplicated and is certain to become a global landmark,” said Ray Ring, regional manager, Johnson Controls. Johnson Controls is also installing its Metasys® building automation system to ensure the cooling plant operates at maximum efficiency.
