Ventilation in Fairgrounds
Usually, ventilation in fairgrounds and other large buildings with high ceilings is necessary since they have the problem that they are not very energy efficient. That is, it is necessary to consume a lot of energy to be able to air-condition them.
That is why at Magnovent we have been helping to reduce the energy consumption of this type of buildings since 2008 in order to reduce the carbon footprint and reduce the costs of companies, both public and private.
Challenge: Large fairground ventilation
In this case, we are going to analyze the ventilation situation in fairgrounds. These types of buildings are characterized by having high ceilings and large dimensions. In addition, the flow of people is constant due to the activity that takes place in them. It is for this reason that it is interesting to efficiently manage indoor air. The objective is energy saving.
In this case, we deal with the Alicante fairgrounds. IFA Alicante is a multifunctional pavilion located in Torrellano. It has a capacity for 15,000 visitors, which makes it the largest pavilion in the Valencian Community and one of the largest in Spain.
Solution: HVLS fans to guarantee comfort in the bulding with minimum consumption
In 2016 they contacted Magnovent to install a giant HVLS fan for the hall area of the venue. A large fan was installed to cover the entire area, moving a quantity of air of 700,000m³/h, thus ensuring the comfort of all visitors, reducing the thermal sensation by up to 6ºC in the summer months. This is achieved by combining the use of air conditioning equipment with HVLS fans. By putting the fans into operation, it is possible to distribute the cold air that they generate throughout the room, thus achieving a comfortable thermal sensation with a much lower energy expenditure. This technology is tested and certified by the University of Liverpool in its study carried out in 2010.
In 2021, a phase 2 expansion of the installation was carried out to cover the remaining areas, where 3 Anemoi Airpro 400M HVLS fans have been installed, thus completing this complete project.
If you have come this far and you own a building with the same characteristics as this fairground, or similar ones, get in touch with us, we will be happy to help you save up to 45% in energy costs.
