ABB’s HVAC solution helps JW Marriott Pune to cut down energy losses by 35% | Success Story
JW Marriott Pune, an iconic landmark in the city of Pune, is a five-star luxury hotel catering to leisure and business travellers.
World over, buildings consume over 30% of the global energy consumption. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning consume an average of about 50% of the energy in buildings.
Energy consumption at JW Marriott Hotel in Pune was high. A cooling tower at the hotel is used to provide comfort cooling. Energy is consumed in driving the fans, necessary to achieve proper air movement through a cooling tower.
For half a century, ABB has been leading the way in optimizing HVAC systems in buildings, using drive control technologies. ABB’s Baldor-Reliance Cooling Tower Direct Drive reduces energy usage and maintenance costs for Marriott Hotel in Pune. The Cooling Tower Direct Drive replaces the gearbox, driveshaft, and induction motor typically used to drive cooling tower fans. With a return on investment in less than two years, the solution ensures quieter, and maintenance-free operation as compared to the conventional motor-gearbox systems.
By installing ABB’s Cooling Tower Direct Drive solution in the hotel, JW Marriott Pune has set new benchmarks in energy efficiency, saving about 35 percent energy annually. Energy saved in a day with ABB’s direct drive solution can charge an electric car to run for approximately 1,500 km.
