Jan 26, 2016
Carrier Air Conditioning Sales & Service (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. recently won a contract to supply 24 Carrier AquaEdge® centrifugal chillers to Tianjin Goldin Finance 117, the tallest building in China based on structural height. Carrier is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Carrier is delivering year-round comfort and energy savings at the luxury high-rise with 24 of its innovative AquaEdge chillers, 13 of which are high-efficiency 19XR two-stage centrifugal chillers, with combined cooling capacity of up to 20,000 tons. Otis is providing 255 elevators and escalators.
“Air conditioning makes up to 40 percent of a building’s energy consumption. Developers are facing challenges to balance between a building’s energy saving and indoor comfort especially as they increase in height and size,” said George Li, vice president, UTC Climate, Control & Security China. “With our leading technologies, Carrier can help achieve energy saving goals.”
Since Dr. Willis Carrier invented the centrifugal chiller in 1921, centrifugal technology has been a focus of Carrier’s ongoing product innovation. The 19XR two-stage centrifugal chillers use state-of-the-art two-stage compressors and heat transfer pipes with three-dimensional enhancement and can achieve a coefficient of performance of up to 6.5 under Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute operating conditions.
Located in the coastal city of Tianjin, Goldin Finance 117 soars to 597 meters with 117 floors and 830,000 square meters of floor space. The upper portion will house a six-star luxury hotel and the lower portion will feature Class A office space. Upon its completion, the building will become a new landmark of Tianjin Binhai New Area.
