About This Project

The Élisabeth Bruyère Hospital was originally the Ottawa General Hospital when built. The hospital is one of three sites operated by Bruyère — an academic healthcare organization. Alliance worked with Trane to replace an air-cooled chiller at the facility. The machine helps cool water (or water-glycol mixture) and operates based on vapour compression, condensation, and evaporation. By absorbing heat from process water and then transferring this heat, the air-cooled chiller is used to provide consistent temperature and pressure.
