Massive energy savings in giant shopping centre

A near-excellent energy efficiency ratio, and energy savings as high as 50%? These eye-catching figures don’t stem from a product test or theoretical calculation – they’re the actual operation data from a high-efficiency equipment room in M·LIVE, a shopping mall in Guangzhou, China.

Just like the heart of a building, the equipment room houses pumps, filters, and heaters, just to name a few. In M·LIVE, the original equipment room was rebuilt due to low efficiency and high energy consumption, as well as a high failure rate.

Since implementing Grundfos solutions during the reconstruction phase, M·LIVE has experienced substantial energy savings. The mall uses Grundfos’ high-efficiency vertical double-suction pump, which has been tailored in its optimisation to meet the mall’s requirements, and pump efficiency now reaches 86%.

Now, the mall is a one-stop family leisure shopping centre, housing international business giants including Sam’s Club and IKEA.

“We speak with facts and convince people with data,” said Yung Fong, business managing director of China Building Service.

“Energy conservation and consumption reduction are the future of urban architecture and development. Grundfos’ products and technologies are superior to its peers, and there is no doubt it will become the first choice for China’s new infrastructure construction. We will continue to contribute to China’s sustainable urbanisation.”
