Responsibility for ensuring the right temperatures when Nord University in Bodø opens its new Blue Building for fishing-related research, education and development in 2024 rests with PTG.
The new facility will provide modern laboratories, lecture halls and offices for the faculty of biosciences and aquaculture. Covering 8 400 m², it is intended to help scientists, students and industry come up with the sustainable solutions the world needs.
Among its features is a freezer room which maintains a temperature of ‑40°C, so that students can test seafood storage and quality.
PTG MultiKulde in Bodø s supplying the air conditioning system for the building. Its delivery comprises two propane-chiller cooling plants, a propane liquid-to-water geothermal heat pump which captures solar energy stored below ground, and an environment-friendly CO2 refrigeration plant.
“This is a positive development in an environment-friendly direction,” says Mikael Andersen at PTG MultiKulde AS in Bodø. “Work starts in January and is due for completion in the autumn of 2023.”
