AXEL SPRINGER AG, PUBLISHER’S OFFICES, HAMBURG, REFURBISHMENT OF THE COMPLETE COOLING SYSTEM
Scope of supply
In an open challenge for the innovative refurbishment of the ca. 4 MW cooling system at the publisher’s Hamburg site, IB Liebert took first place in the ideas competition, ahead of nine other consulting engineers. IB Liebert successfully convinced the jury with a concept which uses new, intelligent hydraulic switching in the building to reduce energy costs by 30% and to lower the connection requirement by 1 MW. In consequence IB Liebert was awarded the planning and site management contract for refurbishment of the cooling system, including I&C and BMS installations, and splitting units in the publishing building. Refurbishment took place with the building fully operational, and included maintaining the continuous, reliable provision of cooling for computer centres.
