Sustainable Comfort at Nuvola by Lavazza

 
     
 

Mitsubishi Electric Hydronics & IT Cooling Systems, through its brand Climaveneta has supplied the air conditioning units to the new Lavazza HQ, rising from a refurbished power plant in the city centre of Turin. The complex consists of a new building, designed by Cino Zucchi Architects and the renovation, still in progress, of the historical building of the power plant, which will become an event space with restaurants. The new building has sinuous forms which recall those of a cloud, and is linked to the Lavazza Museum through a large atrium this creates new pedestrian spaces which opens into the neighborhood.

 

The environmental respect is evidenced by the decision to certify the new development in accordance with LEED requirements. Several design choices have been taken to improve the energy performance of the new business center of about 25-30%. The most significant ones are the production of heating and cooling which exploit ground water; the choice of a primary air system based on radiant ceiling panels, the air-treatment with high efficient heat recovery system, the photovoltaic system for the production of electrical energy, and the LED lighting system capable of maximizing the natural light reducing the consumption of electricity. The comfort inside the buildings is granted by Climaveneta high efficiency multi-purpose heat pumps. Specifically, there are 3 ERACS2-WQ 2502, 1 WW-HT 0202 and 1 MANAGER 3000 serving the new building and 3 ERACS2-WQ 1302, 1 NECS-WQ 302 and 4 WW-HT to grant perfect comfort all year round in the refurbished one, for a total of 3.000 kW heating capacity.

FOCUS ON THE PRODUCT

ClimaPRO: Chiller plant control with active optimization system

In commercial buildings, HVAC accounts for 45% of total energy consumption, 65% of which is used in the plant room alone. The plant room can be considered the heart of HVAC. It is where hot and cold water is created for distribution to other subsystems throughout the building. Optimization of the energy used within the plant room is therefore critical to the overall building energy profile. ClimaPRO is the best investment to harness the energy saving potential offered by HVAC plant room equipment, driving real energy saving routines and effectively reducing your total energy bill.
