02.04.2014

The prestigious Musée d’Orsay in Paris has recently installed a new HFC-based Air Conditioning system for preserving its sensitive indoor environment, crucial to the works of art and providing comfort and safety to 3.5 million-plus visitors a year and its staff.The Museum had to replace four HCFC-22 chillers to conform to HCFC phase-out legislation, and took the opportunity to reduce energy consumption and operating costs, while increasing sustainability.Four high-efficiency HFC-134a chillers and four custom-built cooling towers in stainless steel were installed, with a total cooling capacity of 2.3 MW. Chiller-plant controls with refrigerant monitoring and leak detection help to further optimize the whole system. Source: MBS – Modern Building Services
