3.2 RUSSIA
2017/11/26
Reported by Litvinchuk HVAC Marketing Research Agency and APIC, Russia
 
Positive trends that emerged in the Russian chiller market at the end of 2016 continued to develop in 2017. According to the results of the first eight months, chiller imports increased by 33.1% in capacity and 41.3% in monetary terms as shown in Figure 1. By the end of the year, this figure is likely to be more modest, since the big deliveries took place in the first half of the year. The last quarter of 2017 is expected to give rise to a slight increase com-pared with the successful fourth quarter of 2016.

At the same time, the main growth of the market was ensured by several big construction projects completed using magnetic bearing centrifugal chillers. These were the Data Processing Center of Sberbank of Russia (A total of 23.7 MW chillers from Uniflair), the second stage of the Moscow Domodedovo Airport (a total of 45 MW chillers from ENGIE), and the Lakhta Center - St. Petersburg office of Gazprom (a total of 25 MW chillers from ENGIE). In eight months alone in 2017, 132 magnetic bearing centrifugal chillers with a total capacity of 96 MW were sold in Russia as compared to 32 units with a total capacity of 16 MW over the same period in 2016. These sales markedly changed the structure of the market in the terms of capacity, as Figure 2 clearly demonstrates.
