In 2015 through the good offices of Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL) we were pleased to run two air-conditioning energy saving pilot trials at Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) sites in Hong Kong. The sites were equipped with state-of-the-art Daikin multi-split Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) inverter based air-conditioning systems. Happily these pilots delivered seasonally adjusted energy and carbon footprint reductions of around 30% without adversely affecting temperature or humidity aspects.
Subsequently, JLL installed COOLNOMIX® in all direct cooling(*) equipped HSBC banking and ATM sites in Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) and Manila (the Philippines). 5 years on and with average savings of 27.5% we are pleased to report that these 1,000 COOLNOMIX® HSBC units are still going strong, and we have never received any report of failures.
* direct cooling – where compressors and refrigerants are used to cool the air directly
