The Client –
UK Based M&E Contractor
The Challenge –
Cooling System Requirement For An Automotive Client
The Solution –
Low Temp Chillers – Supply Only + Technical Overview
A recent project for an automotive industry client highlighted the flexibility and versatility of the service offering Aqua Group can provide, not just to direct end user customers but also to mechanical contractors and consultants.
In this example, the end user appointed a design consultancy and an M&E contractor to deliver a cooling system for their automotive process. Aqua Group were approached by the specified contractor to provide the equipment required on a supply only basis.
The end client’s process was working on temperatures down as low as -25°C so Aqua provided 3 x air cooled chillers specifically designed for low temperature applications. The units, each 152kW, included screw compressor, shell & tube evaporator, cooper tubed condenser, aluminium finned core and axial fans. The chillers were designed with several extras, including low noise option on each compressor.
However, whilst working on a supply only basis, Aqua’s engineering team were still on hand to give technical oversight and advice. Sales Manager, Shaun Lancaster, explained; “Our engineers have the ability to work with clients in many different ways, depending on their individual situations and requirements.”
“One member of the team could be working on a project that involves a full turnkey solution – from site visit and energy analysis through project management to installation and commissioning. Equally, at the same time one of the team could be working on a supply only project. The Aqua difference however is that even in a supply only scenario, our engineers will still be on hand to give technical advice and guidance at the design stage to ensure the final system will do what it needs to do. We work with our clients for the long term, regardless of whether they are OEMs, end users, trade customers or consultants and M&E contractors.”
