BASSANO DEL GRAPPA, Italy, April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Innovative district cooling and heating in Malta, based on Climaveneta units.
Conceived as a mixed-use lifestyle development, Tigné Point is currently best known for its luxurious apartments. Whilst these continue to attract buyers from different corners of the globe, the residential component of the project comprises just 55% of the area of the peninsula. This is complemented by 'The Point' shopping mall, Malta's largest retail centre, and the car-free Piazza Tigné - the heart of this mixed-use project and the largest square in the fashionable Sliema district. An international grade business block, to be known as The Centre, is currently under construction on the seafront side of Piazza Tigné. This will contain some 14,000 sqm of commercial and leisure outlets that will complete the square environment and the surrounding retail and catering outlets.
Dr Alec Mizzi, chairman of MIDI plc, talking about the project said: "We are proud to have created such an innovative and luxury development on our beautiful Island. The great success of the Tigné Point project is confirmed by the appeal it has for buyers coming from different corners of the globe"
The HVAC system at Tigné Point is a prime example of innovative technology providing economic solutions for corporate and residential applications alike. The environmentally-sound and energy-efficient climate control system supplies heating and cooling to 25,000 square metres of retail space and some 200 homes. It will also cater to 14,000 square metres of office and commercial space that is currently under construction at Tigné Point.
The system is based on 4 FOCS W/H 3602, 1 FOCS2 W/H/CA-E 3602 with a HWT kit, Climaveneta's water to water high efficiency heat pump, with hydraulic side reversibility and 2 EW-HT1204/S, Climaveneta's water to water heat pumps, heating only with very high temperature water production.
Jesmond Zammit, General Manager at Solutions and Infrastructure Services Ltd, said: "One of the most important gains with centralisation is energy efficiency that is guaranteed throughout the life-cycle, starting at design stage by choosing best-in-class equipment, to operation by utilising fully-automated building management systems, further maximised via a well-planned and executed maintenance regime."
