T5 chooses ammonia chillers from York

T5
Ammonia chillers with a capacity of 6.6 MW are to be supplied for the Terminal 5 development at Heathrow airport by York International. The four chillers will be delivered to site in December and form the first phase of the installation. They were chosen because ammonia has no global-warming effect and also will not contribute to ozone depletion. York was appointed to the design team, alongside M&E contractor AMEC and engineering consultant PBX Power. The chillers will be located in T5’s energy centre. Ian Lilley, director of strategic initiatives,says, ‘Our integrated tender strategy brought together wide-ranging skills from our UK organisation and our specialist ammonia factory in Denmark. This significant development demonstrates York’s total design, manufacturing, service and maintenance capability to the European market.’
