The Perpignan hospital center, formerly Saint-Jean hospital, is a hospital center with
1 477 beds located in Perpignan in the Pyrénées-Orientales, in the Occitanie region.

In 2018, an energy optimization program is initiated by the facility operator - Dalkia Méditerranée, in which a supplementary cooling unit is requested to increase the cooling capacity of the hospital to provide air conditioning to rooms and medical equipment. 

The hot water from the urban district heating network at 90°C is used very less in summer, thus it become an ideal energy for generating cooling. BSB EUROPE selected a 400kW packaged single stage hot water chiller to deliver 5°C chilled water for the hospital. 

By selecting the packaged model (chiller + pumpset) - the customer was able to save a substantial amount of investment which supposed to be spent in design, installation.  
The containerized solution to place the assembly outdoors, while protecting the mechanical system from typical southern France weather (strong sun radiation, high heat, etc..) is appreciated by the building rennovation plans.
The equipment quality and back up service are appreciated by client.
