Innovative Deep Lake Water Cooling project offers versatile energy solution

TORONTO, March 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enwave Energy Corporation (Enwave) is working with the University Health Network (UHN) to connect the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre to Enwave’s Deep Lake Water Cooling (DLWC) system. DLWC draws cold water from Lake Ontario to cool buildings in Toronto’s downtown core. A sustainable alternative to traditional cooling towers and equipment, the project will improve reliability, reduce operating costs and support better patient care.

With completion scheduled in fall 2019, this project builds on the success of other Enwave connections at UHN facilities, including the Toronto General Hospital in 2018 and the TRI-University Centre in 2009. The retrofits are expected to control operational costs while providing a resilient energy source. Over the life of the systems, this will enable UHN to redirect significant funds from energy to other priorities such as patient care.
