Carrier supplies a winning hand

CHINA: Carrier Hong Kong has supplied chillers, heat pumps and fan coil units to the new Grand Lisboa Palace Resort Macau.

The recently-opened casino resort combines world-class accommodations, dining, shopping, leisure and entertainment with a design blending Chinese and Western cultures. The resort features 1,900 rooms in three hotel towers – Grand Lisboa Palace Hotel, the world’s only Karl Lagerfeld branded hotel, and Asia’s first Palazzo Versace hotel featuring the creative direction of Donatella Versace – and casino gaming. The initial-phased opening includes the casino space, 300 guest rooms and restaurants. Space for events, the Bazar, a 75,000m2 shopping mall, and other diverse vacation facilities will be available in the near future.

To help ensure a comfortable indoor environment, Carrier Hong Kong provided seven AquaEdge 19XR high-efficiency centrifugal chillers, four AquaForce 30XW heat pumps and more than 3,000 low-noise fan coil units to the project.
