Daikin Air Handling Units for health sector applications

The New Papworth Hospital project is the demonstration of how Daikin Air Handling Units are a great solution even for the most sensitive applications like hospitals.

The New Papworth Hospital is a new facility built from scratch on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, and it is part of the international centre of excellence in biomedical research. For this construction by Skanska, worth approximately £165m, Daikin provided 60 HTM compliant Professional Air Handling Units – 42 Internal and 18 External, with various air volumes – plus 3 water cooled chillers EWWQ 430 L SS totalling 1MW of cooling. It is one of the biggest health sector construction projects in the UK.

Daikin has provided value with its cutting-edge and sustainable technology helping to comply with the efficiency standards required (EN 1235/14), for both heat recovery and overall AHU power. Also, the selection and use of high efficiency EC fan and motor solution – which provides a great overall drive efficiency – were important aspects that helped achieving the efficiency goals. These fan arrangements used single fans, twin fans and multiple fan arrays which also allowed for increased resilience and rapid service.
