Public Swimming Pool

Public Swimming Pool of Vila Pouca de Aguiar, in Portugal


Daikin has supplied two New Small Inverter Chillers with R-32 (in the heating version) as a replacement heat pumps at the Public Swimming Pool of Vila Pouca de Aguiar, in Portugal. The units will complete the pre-existing HVAC system.

The main goal of this project was replacing two air-cooled heat pumps which were giving reliability issues and could not properly meet the needs of the facility, forcing the client to constantly face insufficient heating issues.



Total heating capacity: 280 kW


The main requirement for this project was to replace the old heat pumps with very reliable, efficient and environmentally friendly new units.


The new Small Inverter Chiller Series chosen for this project stands out for providing the best efficiency levels in the market, both in cooling and heating mode, and the lowest direct and indirect CO2 emission levels. That makes the new Small Inverter Chiller a great environmentally friendly choice, also thanks to the use of R-32, which is known for being a low GWP and a sustainable refrigerant.

Besides efficiency and environmentally friendliness, quiet operations, reduced footprint and advanced connectivity were also features greatly appreciated, which made units from this new range a perfect choice for the project.

Reliability, then, was ensured by Daikin’s huge experience in developing R-32 technology.

In 2018, Daikin was an early innovator and made history by introducing the first R-32 refrigerant chillers, followed by free-cooling scroll units the same year, and the R-32 Heat Pump in 2020.

Today, Daikin is the brand with the highest number of R-32 installations in the world, as a testimony to the experience, the knowledge, the quality and the reliability of its R-32 products.
