Middle East: Johnson Controls (JCI) has announced recently executing a major order to supply process cooling systems for a gas plant in the Middle East.

Giving details, JCI said that its scope on the project is six operating and two standbys of 2.75 MW, R-134a systems, utilising a total of 16 screw compressors, with a total cooling duty of 33 MW, cooling water from 33 degrees C to seven degrees C.

According to JCI, it is a thermal storage application, which takes advantage of a reduced ambient temperature to build a cold water inventory at night. The process water, it added, is cooled in two steps to save energy.

The project, the company claimed, had very stringent technical and quality specifications, which were complied, including a special requirement for performance test. For such custom- built cooling systems, the company said, performance testing is typically not carried out in the factory due to constraints, such as package size, power requirement and difficulty in simulating site conditions in the factory. However, JCI reportedly accepted the challenge, and the requisite testing was conducted for one complete cooling system in the AHRI-certified test laboratory in tits China factory.
