A complete HVAC solution for a mixed-use complex
Daikin has recently provided a complete HVAC solution for a mixed-use complex, which will be the largest shopping and entertainment center in Aşgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan. There will not only be shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. Within the walls of the new complex will also rise offices building and residential buildings.
16x EWAD-T-C screw compressor chillers
660x FWV Fan coils
1467x FWA Fan coils
It will look more like a Sultan’s palace than a shopping center: 17 buildings with hundreds of rooms in almost 240 thousand square meters. The complex is still under construction and will be the result of the work and the bold ideas of the best architects and designers of Turkmenistan.
“This complex is built keeping an eye on environmentally friendliness” said Kerim Shirbayev, a specialist from the Union of Entrepreneurs and Industrialists. That of course results in very precise choices in terms of construction materials but also in terms of air conditioning system, which clearly affects the overall energy efficiency of a building.
Main aspects: environmental sustainability, reliability and indoor air quality
Environmental sustainability is definitely one of the main aspects in this project. The entire complex is being built following a whole concept based on environmentally friendliness, so it was important to have HVAC technology that could fit into this concept and help making the complex a green as possible.
That was possible thank to Daikin’s screw compressor chillers that are well known for being very efficient. HVAC technologies efficiency was crucial, not only because that has an impact on energy bills and operative costs, but most importantly because consuming less means making sure that less CO2 is discharged into the atmosphere, and that is absolutely vital as climate change effects are more and more visible.
Another important aspect Daikin’s screw technology is well-known for, is reliability.
Daikin’s single screw compressors, differently from other screw compressors, uses one main screw mashing with twin star rotors to produce volume matching compression cycle. Due to the main rotor, balanced in both radial and axial direction, the compressor bearing has extremely high reliability. Therefore, its life span can be longer than other screw compressors. The single screw compressor has only three moving parts. As a result of that, possibilities of failure are reduced, and operation costs are kept at a lower level.
Then, indoor air quality was another very important aspect.
The Air Handling Units installed will introduce fresh and filtered air in the premises of the complex, extracting at the same time exhaust air. Providing constant air exchange, the system will ensure indoor air is constantly cleaned out from impurities and contaminants, which is very important, as we have experience during the Covid-19 pandemic.
