Carrier Rental Systems shows its form at Ascot

The substantial cooling requirements of this temporary structure for this year’s Royal Ascot race meeting and a month of subsequent events were met by equipment supplied by Carrier Rental Systems.
Cooling equipment supplied by Carrier Rental Systems ensured comfort for race goers in a temporary grandstand at this year’s Royal Ascot meeting. Six chillers delivered a megawatt of cooling The L-shaped temporary grandstand had three decks and had to be constructed in just three weeks. Carrier Rental Systems was involved from the outset to ensure that pipework, cabling and electrical power was appropriately integrated. All power for the structure, including that needed for the kitchens and hospitality services, such as plasma televisions and lighting for the daily fashion show events was also provided by Carrier. Power was supplied by two 500 kVA generators. After Royal Ascot, the building was retained for a month of special summer events. It has a glazed frontage on all three storeys, which was taken into account when sizing the cooling capacity. Determining the cooling capacity required taking into account the thermal values of the glazing, the number of guests and the programme of activities. The positioning of the 70 interior air-handling units was also crucial. The indoor units use 100% recycled air, which reduces the power requirement and more than halves the chiller capacity. Each chiller has four compressors and two separate circuits to provide redundancy. Starting currents are low, and loading can be staged to meet the load. Sound levels are 63 dB(A) at 10 m. 24-hour technical support was provided as part of the standard customer-care package.
