Greenway Design Group today confirmed that its dealer in Oklahoma City has installed a Cool-n-Save system at the Chesapeake Energy Corporation campus in Oklahoma City-OK.
According to the dealer and Greenway engineers, the installation required three Cool-n-Save 'HERO-100' systems for three rooftop 140-ton YORK chillers. The expected cost savings from reduced HVAC energy usage is $6,500 per month, which brings the estimated return on investment (total energy savings versus cost of installation, equipment and first year maintenance) to about 12 months. The engineers also noted that the total dissolved solids (TDS) in the water supply was high, at 650 PPM. The HERO water purification system brought it down to 19 PPM.
"This is a first in what we foresee will open up many more installations at the Chesapeake corporate campus and at other major corporations," says Darius Jakubik, the senior vice president of Greenway. "Ever since we installed the large system at Hughes Network Systems in Las Vegas last year, the inquiries from larger energy consumers have steadily increased."
Greenway markets their pre-cool technology under the trademark "Cool-n-Save." Independent studies field studies (in Nevada and Costa Rica) show that Cool-n-Save evaporative pre-cooling systems may produce energy cost savings as high as 30%, with an average savings of about 26% from air conditioning use during peak heat seasons. The company has been developing pre-cool misting technology since 2005. Greenway received a "green engineering" award co-sponsored by TechAmerica and Harvey Mudd College in 2011.
