The system will be designed and built by Lend Lease. The Veolia contract will involve the operation and maintenance of the 62 MW district cooling network, high voltage embedded electrical network and a recycled water treatment plant.
The Barangaroo South project has constructed commercial, residential and retail buildings, which will start to be occupied from mid 2015. The operation and maintenance of the precinct wide cooling plant by Veolia will ensure optimal thermal comfort for residents, tenants and visitors of the precinct.
Cold water will be supplied from a single central chiller plant, eliminating the need for individual air-conditioning plants for each building within the development. The district wide chiller plant will be cooled by seawater from Sydney Harbor.
