Golden Tulip Vivaldi – Replacement of Chiller

Earlier during the year, the air conditioning strategy of the property was reviewed and decision had been reached to replace the aging R22 chillers. A number of options using VRF units, Chillers, DX units or a combination of systems were being considered.

After reviewing the various options it was decided that the room units would be changed to Heat Pump VRF systems as part of the overall refurbishment of the property. This is an ongoing project and earmarked to be completed during the early parts of next year.

Since the decision on the public areas was not yet finalised, at the onset of summer, a project was hastily undertaken to replace one of the two old chillers feeding the public areas of the Hotel since this had developed irreparable faults and was jeopardising the overall guest comfort. In addition, due to the age of the chillers, a substantial cost was being incurred periodically for the upkeep of these units.

The new chiller for the public areas was sized similar to one of the existing units and a direct replacement was made. From monitoring effected by the clients over the early summer months, it was observed that the one new unit was sufficient to provide all the cooling required by the hotel (thereby demonstrating the inefficiencies of the older units where two in parallel were hardly sufficient to cater for the cooling requirements) and resulted in a cost saving of over €20,000 during these first months of operation. This does not take in to consideration the maintenance costs normally incurred during this time of the year.

It is envisaged that the payback period of this new chillier shall be less than 2 years.
