Today, Carrier hosted a seminar on “Energy Savings in Hotels” for hotel chief engineers, executives and international trade partners. The seminar focused on energy saving opportunities for hotel chiller plant system using Carrier’s new technology, products and control systems. Carrier, the world’s leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
“Hotels are more energy intensive than most buildings due to the long operating hours and higher demand for comfort cooling. Air conditioning chiller plant systems are often the single largest consumer of energy in a hotel, especially in tropical weather climates such as South East Asia. With new technology and better integrated solutions available now, we see tremendous opportunity in hotel energy savings. Many hotel operators are not aware of the potential saving opportunities currently available, and we are eager to share the ideas with them.” said Mr. Oon Wee Chin, Managing Director, Carrier South East Asia.
Carrier introduced its Energy Savings in Hotels program during the seminar. The new program focuses on improving efficiency at one of the most energy intensive part of a hotel building: the chiller plant system. “The program is an innovative and holistic approach to help hotels identify, realize and sustain significant energy savings from existing chiller plant systems”, added Mr. Oon Wee Chin.
One of the highlights of the seminar was the discussion around the Evergreen® 23XRV high-efficiency VFD tri-rotor screw chiller, an innovative commercial air-conditioning product that is highly efficient at both full and part load operating conditions. This high performance chiller has demonstrated 20-40 percent better part load performance against standard water-cooled screw products, providing significant reduction in energy consumption and cost savings. Retrofitted with 23XRV chillers, Furama City Centre hotel became the first hotel in Singapore to be given the Singapore Building & Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Platinum Award in recognition of its efforts in employing energy-efficient products and use of innovative and environmental friendly features in its building. .
“The Energy Savings in Hotels seminar showcased the comprehensive suite of solutions and services that Carrier can offer to hotels. Carrier will lead the entire improvement process, which includes performance assessment, improvement proposal, goal-setting, implementation, monitoring, verification and sustaining the chiller plant system performance,” said Mr. Wang See Chenn, Sustainability Solutions Manager, Carrier Singapore.
The Energy Savings in Hotels program was developed by Carrier’s AdvanTE3C Solutions Center, a global core group of specialist engineers focused on developing innovative solutions for specific applications.
