    The Eton Manor Additional Lightweight Structure


    Event Production


    Temporary HVAC Hire


    400kw cooling- 240kw Heating

    Temporary Event Cooling Hire- A complete 400kw HVAC climate control system designed and installed by Climate Rentals for the Olympic ceremonies performers.


    The Challenge;


    To supply at short notice temporary event cooling hire for a lightweight structure on the Olympic site.

    This HVAC project came about as a result of the test events held prior to the Olympics. Worryingly, it was found that insufficient space was available for the opening ceremony performers to make up in. Additional space was required fast and as a trusted supplier Nussli Switzerland turned to Climate Rentals for a solution.

    At 70x 30mt, this large structure required a high air volume/ velocity system. Equipment was restricted to one side of the building and budget limitations meant distribution systems such as air sock could not be used.


    The Solution;


    ACS supplied and fitted Six ACS 100.60 AHU’s and a 400kw portable water chiller with a reinforced rubber hose distribution system. Flexible ducting was used for supply and return air distribution. The air handlers were able to supply the air at enough velocity to circulate air evenly over the whole internal area- consistent temperatures were maintained throughout the space in this way.

    The whole event HVAC project was specified, fitted and commissioned within a week. Decommissioning took 6Hrs.

    In this shot the chiller and AHU plant can be seen. The conditioned air was ducted into the tent with flexible ducts.




    Simplicity of design and versatility of equipment was key to fast installation.

    ACS 100.60 air handler are a one box heating and cooling solution- quickly installed, they offer full automatic control of space temperatures. Electric on- board heaters allow simultaneous heating and cooling in different zones, as opposed to, heat pump systems where all are heating or cooling. Dehumidification is also possible with the reheat option.

    The chiller is self contained with a pump system fitted. A quick fit modular rubber pipe-work system using Camloc connections is fitted fast and is above all, reliable.
