Comfort and innovation for a Norwegian Care Center
Completed before the end of 2017, the care center represents an innovative solution for energy-efficient buildings with energy class B. Situated in Uggdal city center in Tysnes, the care center is a new construction with an area of 5200 m2; it accommodates 30 nursing and 10 care homes. Commodities, offices, meeting rooms and technical rooms are also located within the building.
Tysnes municipality has chosen to implement this project according to the implementation model, which is often called Integrated Development and Implementation (Design-Build).The project has been won by our Norwegian distributor Utstyr & Kjoeleservice AS in a competition where both the solution and price were decisive for the developer.
The building has a modern and practical kitchen, and it is equipped with an innovative patient alert system in order to make everyday living to future residents and employees as simple as possible. Among other things, in order to keep the building's operating costs down and reduce climate emissions, the building uses the water drill heat for heating and is facilitated for future connection on the district heating network. In addition, one of the sustainability aspects applied to this new construction project consisted on heat recovery and the use of natural refrigerants for the cooling/heating of the care centre.
TECNOFREDDO S.r.l has been commissioned for the realization of a water cooled liquid cooler and reversible heat pump, in the same system, employing ammonia as natural refrigerant. TECNOFREDDO S.r.l provided an exclusive and customized design, in order to achieve the requested cooling and heating effects while combining the use of environmentally friendly fluids and the advantages of a long lasting investment.
