HSBC Building is a 16-storey commercial building comprising bank vaults, banking hall, open plan office and dining space. The existing air-conditioning system prior to the renovation works consisted of 3 numbers of air-cooled chillers and 4 numbers of chilled water pumps.
In a bid to increase the chiller plant efficiency and capacity at a reasonable payback period, BYME was tasked to replace the existing chillers and chilled water pumps with brand new, high efficiency units.
The oil-free chillers and chilled water pumps were successfully commissioned to meet the current building cooling demand and to reduce the energy usage.
Well-planned logistic for delivery of chiller at Nathan Road – most busy traffic trunk line in Kowloon is the key to the success of this project.
Scope of works
Design, supply, delivery and installation of :
- Oil-free air-cooled chillers: 3 x 1,177 kW
- Chilled water pumps: 4 nos.
- Measurements and performance verification of the newly installed oil-free air-cooled chilled water system
