The Ministry of Health of Malaysia (MOH) recently held a ground-breaking ceremony to mark the start of the construction for a new hospital in Cyberjaya, the country’s technology hub. Slated to be operational by 2020, the state-of-the-art hospital will accommodate 288 beds on a 4.86-hectare land.
Located within the hospital land will be a District Cooling System (DCS) to provide self-sufficient, energy-efficient cooling for all the hospital buildings. ENGIE is partnering with Malaysia’s Pendinginan Megajana Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of tech hub enabler Cyberview Sdn Bhd, to build a DCS plant with a 1,600 RT peak load demand (5,627 kWr) which can meet 8,172 MWh of cooling energy required per year. The project would also include a Thermal Energy Storage tank to enable low operational costs and the production of chilled water at a competitive price. The DCS will be fully functioning by Q4 2020.
