INDUSTRY.co.id - Semarang - As part of its commitment to efficiency of energy consumption and reduce operational costs, green chiller technology which is an environmentally friendly hydrocarbon based cooling system can save electricity up to 30%.
PT. Phapros Tbk in Semarang, Central Java, became the first industry player to use the hydrocarbon cooling system in Indonesia.
Capacity of 231.9 kW each with hydrocarbon refrigerant content of 30 kg, Green Chiller is expected to save electricity usage up to 394.311 kWh / year or equivalent to 440 million / year.
"With savings of up to 440 million per year, this is a very lucrative project," said Director General of Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (EBTKE) of the Ministry of Energy and Resources Mineral Resources (ESDM), Rida Mulyana when inaugurated the installation of two hydrocarbon chillers at the production facility of PT. Phapros, Tbk in Semarang (4/5/2018).
Rida rate, the system has many benefits, including lower operating costs for using technology more efficient.
The technology will also operate with a working pressure that is 20% lower than that of fluorocarbon refrigerant. This technology is expected to reduce energy consumption between 17% -30% compared to the use of fluorocarbon refrigerant.
In addition to reducing electricity usage and cost, this hydrocarbon-based chiller implementation is also capable of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 356 tCO2 / yr or 7,121 tCO2 over 20 years (lifetime).
The first hydrocarbon chiller began to be installed at the Phapros plant at the end of 2017, feeding then the second chiller in January 2018. The chiller is used to cool various rooms for drug production, storage and bacteria breeding in PT. Phapros Tbk in Semarang.
The ESDM Ministry continues to encourage industry players to implement conservation and energy efficiency programs, so Indonesia's commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as declared in the Paris Agreement can be realized.
