A top Spanish hotel is cutting energy usage by 40% after equipping its heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems with ABB drives and high efficiency motors. Usage at the InterContinental Madrid has been reduced by 445,000 kWh a year.
The hotel has eight pump groups that serve its HVAC systems as well as hot water supply for guest rooms, kitchens and other facilities. Although these systems were well maintained and in good condition, the hotel management was concerned that the energy efficiency levels were below current best practice.
