Client ACC Liverpool
Products used 17 combined air handling and refrigeration units and 5 air handling units
 
 

Barkell worked in conjunction with partner company, cooling specialist Airedale International, as well as with M&E contractors, to design and engineer an energy efficient, resilient cooling solution for the 8100 square metre state-of-the-art exhibition centre and hotel in Liverpool.

The complex is the latest addition to ACC Liverpool, currently home to the BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena, and located on the city’s iconic waterfront. It is reported to be the only purpose-built interconnected arena, convention and exhibition centre in Europe.

Barkell solution

  • 17 combined air handling and refrigeration units and 5 air handling units
  • The combined air handling /refrigeration units comprise:
    Integral mechanical (DX) cooling
    Low pressure hot water (LPHW) heating
    Heat recovery via thermal wheel
    Electronic expansion valves
    F7 filtration
  • Integrated control panel and strategy for refrigeration and air handling with recirculation for early morning start-up boost
  • Air volumes between 1.71 and 13.5m3/sec
  • Enviropack available in three sizes and 24 configurations:
    Cooling only – 12 models (10-235kW)
    Heat pump – 12 models (9-218kW)

Benefits

  • Energy efficient combined air handling and cooling solution with four stages of cooling and minimum heat recovery efficiency of 65% in both summer and winter through thermal wheels
  • No need for external chillers, dry coolers or condensers, simplifying installation and minimising the volume of refrigerant required
  • Integrated controls panel allows performance to be precisely managed, extends unit life and provides redundancy
  • Can be integrated with any Building Management System (BMS)
  • Best value for money solution

The successful project is an example of Barkell's partnerhip with cooling specialist Airedale International, since the companies joined forces in 2014.
