KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -
Carrier (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd. (Carrier Malaysia) was selected to supply six AquaEdge® 19XRE centrifugal chillers, two AquaEdge® 19XR6 and 430 air handling units for Merdeka PNB118.

The tower will house Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB)’s group of companies over 60 floors, with 23 rentable office floors and a 17-storey luxury hotel with 236 rooms, as well as multiple sky lobbies and an observation deck.
