About the products and the project
Daikin was involved in the Bilma project to replace an old HVAC system which was no longer meeting modern standards both in terms of energy efficiency and regulations.
The solution provided by Daikin includes 7 high efficiency air handling units, one per each floor of the 6-storey business center, plus 1 more air handling unit to ensure the cafeteria has the needed air exchange rate. The 7 air handling units guarantee perfect indoor air quality in the building.
Besides air handling units, the system also includes VRV and Daikin altherma units, to provide the necessary cooling for air conditioning, and heating for both the underfloor heating and hot sanitary water. The system also offers the I-Touch Manager to efficiently control the entire building from one centralised interface with the Daikin Building Management System (BMS), and Daikin on Site, for remote monitoring and control.
