Automotive and Marine Supplier Saves with Gas Cooling
When summer’s heat and humidity sets upon New England, comfort cooling for plant employees and staff is a priority at Kongsberg Automotive. A 200-Ton Tecochill gas engine-chiller, saved the company $30,000 a year in operating costs over an electric chiller. This facility had previously been cooled with an electric chiller which was costing an upwards of $125,000 a year to operate. Even going to a new higher efficient electric chiller, operating costs would have been in the $61,000 range. It made sense to look at the gas engine alternative which offered tremendous savings.
