Essentially, district cooling and heat is a community-based solution that already plays an important role in the sustainable energy sector – and will become even more important in future. It means that local cooling and heating systems meet local energy needs. Our QUANTUM Power fulfils these requirements with maximum energy efficiency and performance.
First sea water geothermal District Heating and Cooling in France, supplying end customers in Marseille. The highest energy efficiency in the market and simplified maintenance were the main decision criteria for the customer regarding this new DCS.
District Cooling for the Opera Paris and and its surroundings. With the QUANTUM P chillers the annual energy efficiency was calculated by Climespace to be twice the usual energy efficiency of big standard oil turbo chillers.
10 MW of refrigeration duty servicing Leeds University Hospitals within a district cooling net. All QUANTUM chillers have an integrated Open-Flash-Economiser for best energy efficiency.
Three QUANTUM chillers form a local refrigeration network and thus ensure the right temperature. The main decision criterion for the customer was the fantastic partial load of our QUANTUM chillers.
ENGIE Refrigeration is taking over the refrigeration supply for the residential buildings in the Olympic Tower complex. For this purpose, four QUANTUM chillers with a cooling capacity of 1.29 MW each will be sent to Iran. These four machines will be used to set up a district cooling network within the building complex.
At KIT there are already two ENGIE Refrigeration QUANTUM cooling machines cooling the campus data centre. The customer was highly satisfi ed with their performance, the excellent energy efficiency and the low costs for maintenance and decided to continue to back QUANTUM district cooling in the future.
District cooling and heating networks make life easier for you as an operating company, but also for consumers. The QUANTUM Power demonstrates its strengths in the megawatt range in particular. At these high ratings, the chiller is particularly energy-efficient and thus lowers energy costs. This improves economic performance, and the savings can be passed on to end consumers.
Why are district cooling and heating networks so groundbreaking? It’s quite simple: thanks to constant monitoring, they offer a stable, reliable energy supply and regional autonomy, unlike other energy industry solutions. At the same time, these technologies are constantly evolving and reducing carbon emissions, which means they help improve climate protection.
With a refrigeration capacity of up to 8,500 kilowatts, the QUANTUM Power is the perfect chiller for district cooling networks. Its compact and modular design allows it to adapt flexibly to any requirements and handle even the most complex on-site conditions. As well as the efficient design, maximum operational reliability and special features that all QUANTUM chillers share, the QUANTUM Power also offers the following three characteristics:

The principle of district cooling is similar to that of district heat, but in the opposite direction. The QUANTUM Power cools water centrally and then distributes it to consumers via a pipeline system. There the water absorbs heat from the building climate control systems and returns it to the chiller via a second line. The cycle begins again.
This has the following advantages:
Many cities in Europe already use district cooling as an eco-friendly measure for climate control. As political pressure to find climate-friendly solutions increases, district cooling and district heat will become ever more important in future.
With ENGIE Refrigeration you are perfectly prepared for this situation, and you gain a partner who can advise you on all refrigeration and heating solutions.
‘District cooling and heating networks are the answer to current and future questions of sustainable energy management. They are social and help to curb climate change. Secure and constant monitoring of the networks guarantees a permanently reliable supply.’
