Applied Development Center

Plymouth, Minnesota

Overview

The Daikin McQuay Applied Development Center is a 46,600-square-foot, state-of-the-art research-and-development facility for high-efficiency heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) technologies. The Center develops and tests advanced chillers, compressors and other HVAC technologies to reduce energy consumption. The development center includes six test cells, which can simulate building, electrical and climate conditions of any location globally. Recognizing that more than 90 percent of the building's energy usage is related to process loads (hot and cold water for chiller and compressor tests), HGA integrated a unique energy recovery system into various chiller test systems to recover approximately 75 percent of the process energy.
