Regatta Solution recently received an order for a 500 TR Thermax Multi-Energy driven chiller from a premier grow house facility in California. The equipment is capable of delivering chilled and hot water for cooling & heating applications.
“This sale demonstrates the strategic value of engaging Regatta to develop a cost effective approach to the cooling demands of a Grow House,” said Jeff Noble, VP of Sales, for Regatta Solutions. “A single chiller will be driven by the engine exhaust gases and jacket water heat as thermal heat recovery providing the co-generation efficiency of @80%. These chillers will have natural gas as backup firing in the event the cooling demand rises more than thermal heat recovery. By going the way of using an absorption chiller, the client is able to save on its electrical power consumption by 90%, which is @2 million units per annum which is used for air-conditioning application, thereby less dependent on grid power and shaving peak demand charges.”
This chiller has the capability to provide simultaneous chilled and hot water for the HVAC requirements of grow house cultivation.
“We are ecstatic with the continued success and partnership with Thermax. This project will be a cornerstone to demonstrating the efficiencies that Thermax can bring a grow house,” said Vijay Sharma, GM - Engineering Sales & Services – Cooling & Heating, Regatta Solutions.
