Carrier has supplied three high efficiency AquaForce heat pumps with a combined capacity of 5.0 MW for an innovative project harnessing energy from a local river.

The project, which received approval from the UK’s Environment Agency, utilises Carrier’s electrically-driven AquaForce 30XWHV water-to-water heat pumps. The units capture renewable energy from a local river and upgrade it to higher temperatures for use in an agricultural facility in North East England.

The installation serves a process drying application and contributes to the site’s domestic heating system, with Carrier’s Greenspeed variable speed compressor technology optimising energy consumption all year round. Based on R-134a refrigerant, the units have flooded evaporators that can be mechanically cleaned as part of normal maintenance procedures to ensure continued optimum performance.

Carrier’s water-to-water heat pumps are designed as a premium solution for commercial and industrial applications where clients require maximum efficiency and performance, especially at part load. They are equipped with advanced inverter-driven screw compressors, developed from Carrier’s proven twin-rotor screw design.
