TRACTEBEL Engineering GDF SU ez SIMPLE, SMART SOLUTIONS THAT MAKE SILVER TOWER UNIQUE! Positioning offices to make optimal use of natural light reducing lighting from 500 lux to Supplementing solar roof panels Installing a separate full-time 300 lux air chiller with vertical PV panel strips on the building exterior at the level of the 2 technical to cool the building's data-centre floors increases the PV panel surface area to over with presence and twilight detectors as well as dimmers to further reduce loads. In continual operation this provides a constant supply of recoverable waste heat to 800 m2 heat water for kitchen and with a installed capacity of sanitary use. 100 kwp Concentrating all technical installations on 2 floors Feeding ventilation exhaust air through a high-efficiency rotary (heat) exchanger able to recover the top floor to house the energy production facilities; the 18th floor more to house all ventilation than 85% equipment. of the total heat and latent energy (humidity) of "used" air.
