CASE STUDIES

Boschendal, The Olive Press Boschendal Wine Estate, Cape Town, South Africa


Challenge

To provide a cost effective cooling solution for a large function centre in this Cape Town Winery combat the extreme high temperatures – allowing for the building to be open to incorporate the mountain views.

Solution: Climate Wizard indirect evaporative air conditioning

Boschendal Wine Estate were impressed with the results:

  • Using a data logger over a 10 day period (10-20 March 2015), an average supply temperature of 21° C was achieved, whilst using only 10.8 kW of power, with one side of the building completely open, delivering 100% fresh air;
  • Climate Wizard was 30% cheaper to install as part of a new building site;
  • The infrastructure savings with Climate Wizard were almost 0.5 million Rand, as the venue did not need to upgrade the power supply to meet the inverter air-conditioning requirements;
  • A 2.6 year return on investment could be received by offsetting the capital cost and the annual saving of power (kWh and demand tariffs on kVA).
