UK: A combination of Toshiba three-pipe and two-pipe VRF systems is providing the ideal conditions for visitors to the new £26m Water and Leisure Centre on Great Yarmouth’s Golden Mile.
The system, comprising Toshiba’s SHRM-e and SMMS-u products, was installed by Adcock Refrigeration and Air Conditioning. It serves the centre’s pool and water facilities, 100-station health and fitness gym, sports hall with climbing zone, and café.
Due to the coastal location, outdoor condensers are treated with an epoxy coating to protect against corrosion and prolong working life.
The centre includes 28 Toshiba indoor units, mainly ceiling suspended cassettes, supported by strategically sited wall-mounted and ducted units. Computer and communications suites are served by a separate dedicated air conditioning system with Toshiba lower global warming potential R32 digital inverter splits.
To provide the required resilience, the cooling system is designed to N+1, ensuring there is always a unit on standby.
Control is provided by a Toshiba Carrier UK touchscreen unit, which connects to the central building management system, providing facility managers with full visibility and control of operating conditions and the ability to optimise total system performance.
