CAH requests more advice on Seawater Air-Conditioning

SeawaterWILLEMSTAD – Curacao Airport Holding (CAH) has requested a second opinion on the project Seawater Air-Conditioning, which was presented by Eco Power International. Meanwhile, Aruba stands 100% behind this project.

Seawater Air-Conditioning is a form of air cooling for process and comfort space cooling, which uses a renewable, large body of naturally cold water as a heat sink. It uses water at 4 to 10 degrees Celsius drawn from deep areas within lakes, oceans, aquifers or rivers, which is pumped through the one side of a heat exchanger. On the other side of the heat exchanger, cooled water is produced.

Deep water source cooling is very energy efficient, requiring only 1/10 of the average energy required by conventional cooler systems. The energy source is fully renewable, provided that the heat brought to the ocean does not disturb its natural cycles. It does not use any ozone depleting refrigerant.

CAH has requested a second opinion for more clarity before presenting this project to the Supervisory Board. This is also to show in which direction the company wants to go.
