Rotork valve actuators are supporting advanced environmental protection technologies at the Combined Cooling, Heating and Power Plant (CCHP) constructed to serve the spectacular new Disney Resort in Shanghai.
As a key infrastructure project for the Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone, the CCHP is a grid-tied, gas-fired power plant which co-generates cooling and heating via engine waste heat and produces compressed air by self-generated electricity. The plant will supply hot water and chilled water for space heating and cooling, domestic hot water and all the compressed air needs for the Shanghai Disney Resort’s daily operation in the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly way. The project is designed, constructed and operated by the Shanghai International Tourism and Resort Zone New Energy Company Limited and will become operational in time for the resort’s opening, scheduled for the end of 2015.
Rotork IQ and ROMpak electric actuators are providing a key control element for the automated operation of butterfly valves, gate valves, control valves and blower fans in the power plant, biological aerated filters and pipelines. The actuators’ proven record of reliability contributed to their selection for this prestigious project by the customer and OEMs. Efficient IQ non-intrusive technologies, including integral data loggers, enable the operator to monitor and analyse the condition of critical and safety-related valves, whilst compact ROMpak actuators deliver reliable and economical operation of small valves.
The orders were placed with Rotork Trading (Shanghai) Co. Ltd., who will also provide local support for the installed actuators.
