Chillers at Yemen
The Cooling division of Thermax recently commissioned a multienergy driven chiller of 700 TR capacity at Aden Mall, Yemen. The chiller runs on jacket hot water and steam generated from the exhaust of a 2.5 MW diesel engine, with backup diesel firing. Cold water from the chiller is used for air conditioning the mall, one of the most popular destinations in the city of Aden. The mall situated 10 kms from Aden airport was partially destroyed during the war and is undergoing re-construction. This is the second order bagged by Thermax in Yemen, the first a 300 TR chiller for NAD Foods, a supplier of milk, food products and fruit juice. Here, chilled water from the single effect hot water driven chiller is used for process cooling during the production cycle.
