Gloria Sports Arena Chooses High-Efficiency Carrier Products

LEED is a certification developed by the U.S. Green Building Council for environment-friendly buildings. LEED is the most common, reliable and recognized “Green Building Certification System” around the world. It is intended to create green buildings and settlements that respect people and nature for a more livable world. Gloria Sports Arena, owned by Özaltın Holding and located in Belek, Antalya, has 35.000 m² of outdoor facilities, 5.800 m² of water sports facilities and 6.800 m² of indoor facilities. Using 3 high-efficiency Carrier screw compressor chillers from the new series for its dividable gyms, 6 swimming pools, field hockey field and football fields, Gloria Sports Arena received LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Efficiency Design).

Main features of the project which were deemed worthy of LEED certification included the following:- Energy consumption: 26% less energy is consumed than a reference building described by ASHRAE 90.1-2007.- Renewable Energy: Nearly 5% of the building’s total energy consumption comes from renewable energy.- Water consumption: Nearly 35% less water is consumed than the reference building. The global HVAC leader and inventor of the air-conditioner, Carrier was preferred for project development and consultancy in this project, in which Mechanical Installation Design and Consultancy Services were provided by FNP Filiz - Nail Pehlivan Mekanik Tesisat Sistemleri Mühendislik Müşavirlik Ticaret Ltd. Şti. Screw compressors with frequency inverter and water-cooled 23XRV chillers, which cause no harm to the ozone layer and offer energy efficiency above global standards, are the best in their class in terms of low maintenance and operational costs. These devices are very silent since there are only 3 moving parts.

They are unrivaled in efficiency and there is no surge risk thanks to the compressor structure. Offered with a large range of capacity, 23XRV chillers are designed for a lifetime of efficiency and reliability, and this is why 4 Carrier 23XRV chillers and Alarko Carrier assurance were preferred in this project.
