Carrier Corp., a provider of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration solutions, and a unit of United Technologies Corporation was awarded a $9 million contract by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas South Central Community, an international community of religious women and long time Carrier customers. The project involves developing a new facility to house a state of the art central energy plant in Belmont, N.C. The plant will serve an 11 building campus with more than 350,000 temperature controlled square feet.
Carrier will install two Evergreen 23XRV water cooled screw chillers with Foxfire compression technology. Winner of the 2008 ASHRAE Innovation Award for Green Building, Evergreen 23XRV chillers use non-ozone depleting HFC-134a to achieve energy efficiency. In addition to the chiller installation, Carrier will provide parts and labor service for five years.
Carrier has been servicing the Sisters of Mercy campus in Belmont for nearly four years. Last year the McCarthy Spirituality Center was renovated to utilize Carrier’s Aero 39M air handlers with Agion technology, which ASHRAE recognized with an honorable mention for Indoor Air Quality. Carrier’s package units are also featured in the administration building.
“Carrier is proud of its ongoing partnership with the Sisters of Mercy,” stated Erv Lauterbach, president, Carrier Building Systems and Services, North America Field Operations. “At Carrier, environmental stewardship is a mindset. We are committed to designing and installing reliable, quality, sustainable building systems so that organizations like the Sisters of Mercy can concentrate on serving others.”
