香港一の超高層ビル向けターボ冷凍機6台を出荷
高さ490m、地上118階建てビルの空調を担う




MHI To Ship 6 Centrifugal Chillers for Hong Kong's Tallest Skyscraper
- For Air-conditioning of 490m, 118-story Tower -


Tokyo, December 25, 2006 - Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) will ship six centrifugal liquid chillers on December 30 for the International Commerce Centre (ICC) under construction in Kowloon by Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited (SHKP), one of Hong Kong's largest real estate developers. When completed, the 490-meter, 118-story ICC will be Hong Kong's tallest and the world's third-tallest building in terms of usable floors. The six centrifugal chillers will provide cool air to the office portion of the building. The shipment marks MHI's first delivery of its high-efficiency centrifugal chillers with HFC-134a refrigerant*1 to Hong Kong. The first phase of the ICC is scheduled for completion in May 2008.

Kowloon is one of the most skyscraper-forested areas in the world, containing numerous buildings exceeding 200 meters in height. Even so, the ICC will rise above the crowd. With a Ritz-Carlton Hotel on the top floors and offices, retail stores, restaurants, residences and serviced apartments on the middle and lower floors, the ICC will be a complex facility and sightseeing spot serving as a new landmark in Hong Kong.

The six centrifugal liquid chillers shipped have a cooling capacity of 2,056 RT (refrigeration ton*2) each. The high-efficiency, energy-saving chillers address environmental concerns by adopting HFC-134a chlorine-free zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) refrigerant. A microcomputer control system with color TFT liquid crystal display (LCD) enables meticulous and optimized operation management.

Takasago Thermal Engineering (Hong Kong.) Co., Ltd., the HVAC services conductor of the ICC offer partner, awarded the order with the acceptance of SHKP to MHI in recognition of the chillers' outstanding performance. Hong Kong Polytechnic University has decided to study the adoption of MHI's chillers in collaboration with SHKP as a model case of incorporating an energy-saving air-conditioning system in a skyscraper.

SHKP, publicly listed in 1972, specializes in premium-quality residential and commercial projects for sale and investment. It is actively expanding its business through operation or investment in areas including hotels, social infrastructure projects, financial services and electronic commerce.

MHI is one of the world's leading manufacturers of centrifugal liquid chillers. It provides various chillers for applications involving building and plant air-conditioning, industrial processing, and district-level heating and cooling. To date the company has received orders for 905 units of HFC-134a refrigerant type centrifugal liquid chillers domestically and 136 units overseas. Gathering momentum from the latest order, MHI will now step up its marketing activities in the rapidly expanding East Asia region, including Hong Kong.

Notes:
1) HFC-134a is a chlorine-free refrigerant used in centrifugal liquid chillers sold after 2000.
2)Refrigeration ton represents the refrigerating capacity for turning 1 ton of 0°C water into 0°C ice in 24 hours. 1 RT = 3,320 Kcal/hr.

Wow they're going really fast now. It's already much taller than the US5&6. Should be around 280 meters by now. At current rate it's gonna top out in mid-2008 so I don't understand why they said it will be completed in 2010
