Jodrell Bank new HQ installs Dunham-Bush fan coil units
Dunham-Bush Panther fan coil units have been installed in the new Square Kilometre Array Headquarters at Jodrell Bank in Cheshire. With 135 staff from around the world, the new HQ will be home to the inter-governmental organisation set up to build, manage and remotely monitor the operation of what is the world’s largest telescope, which is located at sites in South Africa and Western Australia.
The Panther range of horizontal chassis, waterside control units incorporate EC motors for optimal controllability and energy efficiency. They have inlet and discharge plenums supplied with sound attenuators to meet the stringent low-level sound requirements of the building.
These high specification Panther fan coil units have been specially engineered to meet this most demanding application. Combined with the very latest design and manufacturing technology, they provide the ideal solution to meet the precise thermal and noise criteria specified at the site. All models have multiple access panels for easy maintenance, another key feature of these versatile units.
The heating and cooling systems were designed by Mott MacDonald’s Manchester office and installed by Chris Bowker of Morecambe.
