Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport, also known as IKIA, is the main international airport of Iran and is the eleventh busiest airport by international passenger traffic in the Middle East. It went about a major expansion in 2016, with the construction of the new Salam terminal.
In order to improve the quality and the capacity of it as well as to satisfy the comfort needs of an increasing number of travelers, the new terminal required an advanced heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system based on high efficiency and reliable chiller technology.
Taking into consideration the peculiar needs of the infrastructure and the challenging climate conditions in Tehran, the designers decided to install Climaveneta 8 FOCS2/K air-source, high efficiency chillers. In fact the HVAC system was expected to work 24 hours a day and very often at full loads. Hence the advantages in terms of continuity of operation, reliability, and energy efficiency, especially at full loads, offered by this chiller technology were ideal to provide high quality of comfort and reduce operating costs.
