Waterloo chilled beams
Waterloo Air Products has supplied nearly 400 bespoke active chilled beams for the first phase of a 10-year development programme at Dublin Airport.

Chilled beams from Waterloo Air Products have been specified to provide energy-efficient cooling for the first phase of a 10-year staged development programme at Dublin Airport.

Waterloo worked closely with its Irish distributor Ventac and mechanical-engineering contractor Lynskey Engineers to design the cooling solution for a new check-in area on the lower ground floor and Pier D for the boarding and disembarkation of aircraft.

Dublin Airport Authority specified that the building should be as energy-efficient as possible, meeting new regulations on energy use from the European Union. Active chilled beams from Waterloo have been tested and rated to the European Standard (PR) EN15116.

The bespoke solution comprises 390 beams, all 300 mm wide and in lengths of 1.8, 2.4 and 3 m.
