Mitsubishi Electric saves energy for Jaguar Land Rover facility

A new Mitsubishi Electric e-series chiller system has been chosen for Jaguar Land Rover’s principal design facility in Worcestershire. The new system was brought in as part of a major refurbishment with the overriding aim of improving on the energy efficiency of the old system.

Mel Baynham at Jaguar Land Rover explained that the Mitsubishi Electric system was the clear frontrunner for several reasons: “We looked at a number of chillers, but the Mitsubishi Electric system met all of our requirements, including next day delivery.”

The system comprises two inverter driven compressors that allow it to operate between 8%-100% of capacity.

“We pushed for modular due to the fact that if a unit went down we would be able to keep the system running while that module was being repaired. It also needed to be a highly efficient system capable of looking after a design office containing 2,000 people”, added Baynham.

Jaguar Land Rover’s new cooling system was designed by Norvent Pipework and installation was carried out by IDS Electrical. The system consists of eight EACV-P900YA-N e-series cooling-only chillers, plus eight MELCOBEMS MINI interfaces, which provide individual indoor unit connections to a third-party Trend Controls building energy management system (BEMS) via RS485 by either Modbus RTU or BACnet from a common platform.
