Another tall air-conditioning story from Carrier

With the order to supply air conditioning for the world’s new tallest building, Carrier is now cooling eight of the 10 tallest buildings in the world. At 508 m high, the Taipei Financial Centre in Taiwan has taken over the title from Petronas Towers (452 m). Equipment for cooling the 101 floors of the Taipei Financial Center includes four 19XR centrifugal chillers, 197 air-handling units and 2233 fan-coil units. The HVAC system includes up to 28 VAV boxes on each floor. The air-supply and return system is integrated with the lighting system. An ice-storage tank in the foundations enhances efficiency and reduces operating costs. The building includes offices, a shopping mall, atrium for entertainment events, 5-star hotel and two observatories — one indoors and one outdoors.
