The PowerChill system is a pre-engineered, factory-tested packaged solution providing uninterrupted cooling, heating and power. Skid mounted or containerised, it integrates the power source (gas microturbine or diesel genset), and ChillTech EGC17 chillers into a package that can easily be installed on-site.
ChillTech’s unique dual-firing capability means cooling and heating can be delivered even if the prime energy source is shut down.

Skid Mounted PowerChill Layout
The system piping connects directly into existing cooling, refrigeration or heating systems and generated power simply connects to the site’s main distribution panel giving single-point utility electrical, water and gas connections. The containerised system makes installation easier and protects against external elements, giving greater flexibility. Direct connection to the turbine or engine exhaust simplifies the system design and eliminates the need for intermediate heat exchangers and other hardware which increases installation costs and can degrade performance.
ChillTech removes the risk and expense associated with onsite integration by assembling, commissioning, and testing the PowerChill unit in our manufacturing facility. All units leave the factory floor with a test certificate as evidence they have performed to specification.
