Thermax’s chillers enter Puerto Rico
The Absorption Cooling division of Thermax commissioned a 360 TR multi-energy chiller for ‘De le Concepcion’ hospital at Puerto Rico. Being an island prone to hurricanes, Puerto Rico is adapting to a gas-based distributed power generation model to reduce its dependency on electricity supplied from the grid. Thermax’s chiller forms a part of the Combined Heating Power & Cooling system, which helps recover waste heat from the engines installed and utilises it to provide chilled water up to 5.5ºC for air conditioning the hospital. With this installation, Thermax has become the first company to supply chillers to the region.
