The green revolution in Uruguay

 
     
 

Uruguay is a country of almost 3 and a half million inhabitants that has no oil reserves and that until just over 10 years ago imported oil from neighbouring countries. Thanks to the green energy policy launched in 2000, and today, the country produces 97% of the total electricity from renewable sources.

 

The city of Las Piedras, in the Canelones region, in recent years has become a rapidly growing urban centre, following the strong metropolitan development of the capital Montevideo. In this area the Las Piedras Shopping mall was created: a total of 38,000 m² with 100 shops, 5 movie theatres, 1 superstore, a large food court with 12 different restaurants, with a total capacity of 600 people. Given the green context in which the structure stands, sustainability and respect for the environment were the cornerstones for the design of the entire building. Great importance was given to lighting, with large use of windows and therefore natural light, flanked by artificial LED lighting. The air conditioning of the shopping centre is based on a centralized system with water-cooled liquid chillers that provide the various commercial premises and air-handling units that serve all the common areas. To reduce energy consumption, while guaranteeing maximum reliability and internal comfort for the end-users of the centre, highly efficient Climaveneta branded units have been selected. In detail, 3 FOCS2-W/CA water-cooled liquid chillers, in a high efficiency version, have been installed with a total cooling capacity of 3,417 kW. These units are connected to the cooling towers. The air treatment is carried out by 10 WIZARD-TA-7500 CA air handling units, with a total air flow rate of 244.035 m³/h.
