The Cooling Post is a British technical information website that’s highly popular all over the world. Its mission, drawn up by the editor Neil Everitt (a technical journalist who’s worked in the HVAC sector for 40 years) highlights its international feel:
“Although UK-based, the Cooling Post seeks out stories of interest to the air conditioning and refrigeration industry from around the world. […] Through its mix of cutting edge news, in-depth feature articles and informed comment, the Cooling Post attempts to provide you with some of the solutions.”
A detailed article that’s been online since 27th May focuses on the recent air conditioning project for the prestigious No.1 Court at Wimbledon – the illustrious tennis stadium which is home to the famous Grand Slam tournament and also hosts the Davis Cup too.
It was a highly ambitious project, for which Aermec had the honour of supplying 26 chillers and 12 air treatment units.
The chillers, each with a cooling capacity of 300 kW, are of the centrifugal fan type for indoor installation. The designers’ main specification was a hugely reduced noise level, as the utility rooms are very close to the spectator area.
For Aermec, it was a confirmation of trust from the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, founded in 1868 and sole owner of the Wimbledon site: in 2008 in fact, Aermec supplied the air conditioning units for the renowned Centre Court, where every year 15000 spectators watch the world’s most famous tournament and a retractable roof was installed to protect the court in the event of rain.
