Jetrun EnergoEco commissioned the HVAC equipment at Artifex, a textile manufacturing plant in Focsani, Romania. The textile production processes involved various types of activities, each activity requiring a different microclimate. The client wanted a system that provided energy efficiency and a high level of comfort for the employees, and hence a creative approach was undertaken, where a geothermal heat pump solution was implemented in the factory, creating one of the largest industrial projects that use geothermal energy in Romania.
The heat recovery system benefits from a special treatment to ensure humidity recovery from the spent air, an extremely important function to reduce the need for additional humidification in winter.
The primary energy consumption is reduced 4 times compared to a standard system.
As for increased comfort for the employees, underfloor heating and cooling was opted.
About the Work
The ventilation system is made up of 4 air handling units with rotary heat recovery system and a plate heat recovery. Given the high density of employees, it became important to ensure a consistent volume of fresh air without affecting the overall efficiency of the installation. By reducing the heat and cooling load of the ventilation system, the system reduced the difference in temperature between the introduced fresh air and the air inside the room, thus eliminating the discomfort created by conventional systems for heating / ventilation.
To ensure the thermal load for heating and cooling , Jetrun delivered 4 reversible geothermal heat pumps with multiscroll technology and intelligent cascading kit.
