Cosaf deliver award winning evaporative cooling system to Ocado 29/11/2011

Evaporative cooling is the cooling of air by the evaporation of water and can be classed as either direct or indirect.

When water evaporates into the air to be cooled, simultaneously humidifying it, this is called direct evaporative cooling and is the oldest and most common form of evaporative cooling throughout the world. When the air to be cooled is kept separate from the evaporation process and therefore is not humidified as it is cooled is known as indirect evaporative cooling.

One such company who have employed a direct evaporative cooling solution are online retailers, Ocado; who are currently in the process of constructing their new £200m distribution centre in Tamworth. Said to be one of the largest and most high profile distribution centres in the UK, sufficient and accurate ventilation is vital to the wellbeing of the stock held on the premises.

HVAC specialists, Cosaf were specified by consultant MBA consulting, who identified the award winning Breezair system as an efficient and environmentally friendly solution to the projected overheating issue the mezzanine level. Unique to Cosaf, the Breezair system provides the most energy efficient temperature relief for large industrial spaces, factories and warehouses.

Cosaf’s team of experts installed 16 Breezair cooling systems to direct fresh, ambient cooled air to the mezzanine area.

Karl Sullivan, Director at Cosaf said:

“This is a prestigious project for Cosaf to be involved with and we are pleased to be working with on site mechanical contractor, Halsalls on this project.

“The Ocado job is a perfect example of Breezair’s efficient temperament. Not only do companies save massively on energy consumption but the endless benefits for staff and the surrounding environment is a huge incentive for any commercial or industrial premises.”

The distribution centre is set to open in late 2012, with a capacity to take over 120,000 orders per week.
