Chiller Replaced at ICBC Standard Bank

Company News, Contract Awards, Maintenance Engineering, EMEA, Service Provider News
Artic Building Services have replaced a key chiller at the UK Headquarters of financial markets and commodities bank, ICBC Standard, under a planned preventative maintenance (PPM) and reactive works contract.


Artic, the bank's Hard FM Partner, are responsible for the maintenance of mechanical and  electrical assets, fire systems, access systems, drainage and building fabric. The company also serves as the principal supplier of HVAC equipment to the financial institution's City of London offices and remove disaster recovery sites.


ICBC Standard Bank operates a suite of chillers that provide round-the-clock cooling to computer rooms, UPS rooms, HV Transformer and switch rooms from primary, "house" chillers and a backup chiller for night time low occupation conditions.


After considering several options with the bank, a Turbocor chiller rated at 371kW was selected for its efficiency. The chiller is expected to pay back its extra cost of investment (relative to competing products) over its lifecycle of 10 to 15 years, and deliver enhanced annual energy savings.


The Turbocor chiller utilises R134a refrigerant and can be adapted to use HFO refrigerant in line with expected future changes to gas legislation.


Full decommissioning of an existing chiller took place over the weekend, with the support of a cranage company and the City of London Corporation which arranged for the road outside the bank to be closed.


The new unit was tested and commissioned immediately to prevent disruption to the bank’s operations and occupants.
