Hidria equips elite commercial building in the centre of London

Hidria equipped the elite commercial building Buckingham Palace Road 123+151 in the centre of the British capital city with its solutions in the area of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and air regulation. In the overall renovation of the glass palace located in the direct vicinity of the Buckingham Palace and the famous Victoria Railway Station, Hidria provided its advanced solutions for the modernisation of ventilation and air-conditioning system. This is without doubt one of Hidria’s most important international projects as of late and a big and important step towards the market of elite facilities.

Hidria was awarded the contract thanks to its advanced solutions for efficient use of energy which have a competitive edge on the market. Since the very beginning of the project, Hidria’s experts participated in the renovation of the facility and convinced the client with their know-how and solutions.
There are eight cooling devices built into the facility, with exceptional total output cooling power of 5 MW. Four cooling devices with recuperation use the waste condensation heat for the need of heating the sanitary water and four use the free-cooling system.
Free cooling is Hidria’s solution which uses the free-cooling function at a temperature that is merely 2°C below the temperature of the environment, such as the temperature of the waste water from the facility. The advanced combination of free- and compressor cooling thus increases the energy efficiency of Hidria’s cooling devices by up to 40%.
Apart from that, Hidria also provided 50 air-conditioning devices for the elite London facility, made in the energy class A, which also allow for extremely economic and efficient energy management.
The implementation of the project was very demanding in terms of finding adequate solutions for such an elite building and also from the logistic point of view. A special lift had to be installed to unload and lift the devices to the roof of the palace, for which the street, ending at the doorstep of the home of the royal family, namely the famous London Buckingham Palace, had to be completely closed for traffic.
