Azrieli Towers is a large office and mall complex. Its 3 towers and multi-level mall constitute over 2 million square feet of office and retails space. It maintains a pleasant environment for shoppers and tenants with an air-conditioning system based on cooling towers. Until they installed WINT they didn’t know they were wasting massive amounts of of water.
With three high-rise towers, the air-conditioning system for two million square feet of retail and office space used a lot of water and was costing the company a great deal of money. As part of its ongoing operational excellence program, Azrieli management requested an analysis of these costs.
To analyse water consumption, Azrieli installed WINT on its cooling towers. Soon after WINT was installed, its algorithms identified irregular operation at the cooling towers resulting in excessive use of water. The issue was easily traced to a mechanical fault which was wasting over 66,000 gallons per day. Once identified, the issue was easily resolved, saving Azrieli hundreds of thousands per year.
With savings of many hundreds of thousands of dollars a year at the Azrieli mall, it was a no-brainer for the company to install the WINT in all its other locations and now monitors cooling towers at all its facilities. With WINT, Azrieli ensures proper operation, saves money and reduces its impact on the environment.
