JEBS was appointed to remove three no. 250kW water chillers and replace these with two new inverter-driven 375kW-rated heat pump chillers, to service the main Departures Hall at Jersey Airport.
This involved staff working air-side and presented some unique challenges for the team delivering the project. The JEBS installation team also installed the first groove lock piping system of its type in the Island for this application, which helped avoid welding and on-site ‘hot works’, reducing installation time and costs for the Client as part of the value engineering process.
As a lot of the works were undertaken outside normal operating hours, pre-planning works at all times and liaising closely with the Client team was essential.
JEBS was appointed to carry out the new VRV installation to the newly refurbished office areas within the departures facility at first floor level.
Project Engineer Iain Campbell said: 'This has been a challenging project due to the nature of access to air-side, delivering materials via the runway and contending with the winter elements. The installation team worked well together to bring this project in on time and within budget.'
