With this new 2,000 Refrigeration Ton (RT) electrical chiller and 20,000 Refrigeration Ton per hour (RTh) thermal energy storage, Megajana’s energy efficiency will improve by 5 percent. This expansion also raises the existing two district cooling plants to a total installed capacity of 14,000 RT chillers and 95,500 RTh of thermal storage, distributing monthly over 3.8 million RTh of chilled water to its 48 buildings customers through a 12km underground network.
Didier Holleaux, Executive Vice President of ENGIE Group, said: “As Asia Pacific shifts into a new low-carbon energy model, clean energy innovations such as district cooling and heating networks will be crucial to support the region’s rapid economic growth in a sustainable manner. Our partnership with Pendinginan Megajana to expand Megajana’s district cooling system will help to promote Cyberjaya as a model for a sustainable green township.”
Dato’ Faris Yahaya, Managing Director, Cyberview said: “As the pioneer of District Cooling System technology in Malaysia, we are delighted to partner with ENGIE to deliver innovative green technology and energy efficient solutions for Cyberjaya, a global tech hub and smart city that is embarking on a sustainable economic development journey, in line with the government’s aspiration to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fight climate change.”
This 2017 facilities expansion, enabling a 5 percent energy efficiency gain, represents a reduction of 2.3 GWh(e) of power consumption or 1,160 tons of CO2 per year.
In accordance to the ratified Paris Agreement aimed at reducing carbon emissions by 2030, Malaysia has pledged a 45 percent reduction in its greenhouse emissions by 2030, and cut 32 million tons of carbon emissions by 2020.
 RT stands for Refrigeration Ton, it expresses a cooling power. RTh stands for Refrigeration Ton-hour: it expresses a cooling energy.
One Refrigeration Ton is the rate of heat removal required to freeze a metric ton (1000 kg) of water at 0°C in 24 hours
