The Ikea Museum, opened on June 30th, is a 7,000 sqm structure located in Almhult, Sweden. It is housed in what was once the very first IKEA store, opened in 1958 and celebrates the companyâ€™s 70 years of history and is expected to become a tourist attraction. The four floors include fully furnished rooms, old catalogues, living spaces of the future and exhibits dedicated to the store’s most popular and not-so-popular items.
Considering the high number of visitors expected, the museum requires a reliable and efficient HVAC system both in visitor areas and in technical rooms, in order to ensure a pleasant visiting experience, in line with the values of environmental respect celebrated by Ikea all over the world.
For this reason a NX/K 1214P air source chiller with scroll compressors by Climaveneta was installed for the air conditioning of the museum. The local temperate climate has made it possible to equip the cooling system of the technical rooms with 2 NECS-FC chillers. As a matter of fact thanks to the Climaveneta advanced free cooling technology system, it is possible to use outdoor temperature as a free source for cooling much more often than traditional free cooling chillers, thus maximising the energy saving achievable.
