Lindau, Germany – After its launch on Monday, 28 March 2022, the new SPECTRUM Water will be available worldwide – both as a water/water heat pump for condenser leaving water temperature of up to +68 degrees Celsius and as a water-cooled chiller for brine applications providing up to -10 degrees Celsius. This will allow the refrigeration and heating specialist to reach new customers and areas of application, especially in the heating supply field. As a heat pump, the new SPECTRUM Water is suitable not just for commercial and industrial heating applications, but also for integration into heat networks, district solutions and housing development concepts.
ENGIE Refrigeration has played a pioneering role in the international refrigeration industry for many years – above all with its QUANTUM Air and QUANTUM Water chillers. The company from Lindau on Lake Constance, Germany, is now increasingly working on innovative solutions for the heating sector as well.
As Jochen Hornung, CEO of ENGIE Refrigeration, said: “At ENGIE Refrigeration we expedite the transition to climate neutrality. We focussed on this aim when developing our SPECTRUM Water. And we achieved it in exemplary fashion: as an ecologically sustainable alternative to boilers that run on fossil fuels, our new SPECTRUM Water heat pump contributes to the decarbonisation of heat generation. We help our customers achieve their own climate targets, and through this collaboration we play our part in the heating transition and help the world achieve its 1.5-degree target.”
The new SPECTRUM Water is based on the technology of the QUANTUM Water, which is currently the most efficient water-cooled chiller on the international market. Accordingly, the SPECTRUM model features innovative technology components, oil-free compressors with magnetic bearings, flooded shell and tube condensers, an open-flash economizer integrated as standard, and an intelligent Siemens S7 PLC; as a result, it offers outstanding energy efficiency, operational reliability and power density. The oil-free machine design guarantees stable performance and efficiency throughout the system’s service life, along with low maintenance requirements. As with the QUANTUM Water, digital features will be available to increase user-friendliness and serviceability, among them the option of using smart control to operate the machine from a mobile end device, and an integrated interface with the CoolCare remote maintenance software.
