The Turkish demo site is a university hospital located in Aydin. It has three blocks, one of which has been the demonstrator under the BRICKER project. It covers an area of 19,467 square meters. The building was inefficient due to lack of insulation in the envelop walls and roof.
The works have included:
7430 m2 insulation work on walls
3360 m2 insulation work on roof
1300 m2 ventilated façade
1300 m2 window film
2 solar fields
ORC cogeneration units
Air-to-air heat exchangers on the roof for heat recovery
The active system uses an adsorption chiller unit with a nominal cooling capacity of 75 tons which has been installed in a purpose-built hangar near the hospital. The system’s ORC cogeneration units are fed by the sun-tracking parabolic trough collectors in the solar fields.
