SWAC: Seawater Air Conditoning

Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC) is a technique that moves cold seawater so that it can be used as air conditioning. SWAC provides a clean and renewable energy source, that can be used to cool buildings instead of energy-intensive standard airco systems.

How does it work

The cool water that is taken from the depths of the sea, is moved to one or more buildings where it cools down heat generated by these buildings. Such a system can utilize cold sea, lake or river water as the source of the air conditioning. Arteq Power is able to use these techniques at already the smallest temperature difference, but of course the cooler the water, the stronger the air conditioning power. SWAC can be used for on- and off shore industrial processes.

Benefits of SWAC

When compared to other kinds of air conditioning, SWAC has a number of benefits:

  • Not harmful to the environment
  • Renewable
  • Provides electricity on a continuous, non-intermittent basis
  • Has a high capacity factor
