The Adelgade District Cooling Energy centre in Copenhagen, Denmark has an installed capacity of 15 MW cooling, The energy centre delivers piped chilled water to nearby buildings that include Banks, Hotels, Museum, offices and a Mint. A 3.5 MW Thermax steam driven absorption chiller is part of the 15 MW installed capacity. A local district heating plant supplies steam to the chiller. Sea water from a 19th century canal is used for heat rejection, thereby eliminating investment and subsequent maintenance associated with cooling towers. The chiller circuits are made with special materials to handle sea water.
