BASSANO DEL GRAPPA, Italy, January 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
The complex of new South Padua United Hospitals is located in the middle of a large green area in Monselice and has a horizontal surface with three factory units for a total of 75,000 m2 of gross floor space.
The topic of energy efficiency was vital from the beginning, in the first stages of the hospital design. The energy analysis that was carried out led to the choice of a tri-generation system, supported by a geothermal field, consisting of 1,300 closed loop vertical probes. The probes are linked to 3 NECS-WN / B Climaveneta heat pumps, placed in plant rooms and directly connected to the collectors of secondary distribution.
Gemmo Spa, the company in charge of the M&E systems of the hospital, has chosen Climaveneta as supplier of the AHU. As a matter of fact even the air treatment system has been chosen for its high efficiency and is based on 132 WIZARD air handling units by Climaveneta for a total air flow of more than 900,000 m³ / h. At the Blessed Teresa of Calcutta hospital they have also installed 9 additional heat pumps for the active thermodynamic recovery in combination with the static heat recovery. Going in depth the plant designer has selected 8 NECS-WN / B and 1 RECS-W / B 2152 all supplied by Climaveneta for a total thermal capacity of 2.3 MW.
Thanks to all these measures and to an integrated design of the building and systems, the total energy request of the hospital is 27% less than another equivalent hospital.
