ABOUT THE PROJECT
Evo Energy Technologies is providing the City of Sydney with a major central energy plant upgrade at the Cook and Philip Park Aquatic Centre (CPP). The upgrade will see both Evo ET Cogeneration equipment and EvoHeat high efficiency Heat Pumps installed, helping the centre reduce their energy consumption, energy costs and carbon emissions.
Location: Sydney, NSW
Client: City of Sydney
• 250kW Agenitor 406 Cogeneration unit on Gas Boilers and complete plantroom refit
• Major central energy plant upgrade including four new EvoHeat CS-GEN2 (3x CS120-GEN2 & 1x CS95-GEN2) high efficiency heat pumps
• 2x Evoheat Ultra chillers
The Evo Ultra chillers work by providing both hot and cold water to different areas to provide heating and cooling. The cold water is moved to air handling units which provide air-conditioning, the hot water heats the Olympic-sized pool. When the pool reaches temperature, the system rejects any excess heat and expels it as hot air out the exhaust fans of one of the EvoHeat CS heat pumps.
Each Evo Ultra unit is 80kW each, and 95% of the time only one unit is required to meet the requirements, meaning just one Evo Ultra unit is more effective than the single previous 250kW air source chiller.
Essentially the pool is able to be heated for incredibly minimal cost off the air-conditioning.
The Cook & Phillip project has received 3 awards at the NSW/ACT SPASA Awards after being recognised for it's sustainability and innovation!
