HTS supplies DWD International with custom HVAC Equipment and Control Systems designed for offshore installations on platforms like this one. As pictured above.
The Big Foot Living Quarters, located offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, required specific HVAC solutions that HTS Texas was able to offer with its premium line of parts and equipment.
Since all the HVAC systems has to be 100% redundant and HTS’ success in designing and implementing DDC controls and HVAC systems on the Bigfoot Electrical Buildings, HTS was chosen as the basis of design. The major goal of this project was to achieve multiple operational profiles in the controls system. The system needed to have several “building modes” such as normal, hurricane mode, black start mode and tow/portside mode. Each had to have differential and AHU load profiles and the VAV system needed to be balanced in each mode, making it easy to seamlessly switch between profiles on the fly. The system needed to be able to utilize emergency generator power supply and reduce operating capacity if a major storm or hurricane threatens the platform.
For these specific requirements, 125 ETI VAV terminal boxes were installed, totaling 115,600 cfm. A Siemens Talon building automation controls system was installed for the BAS to ensure efficiency and quality. Also installed were two fully custom Haakon air handling units and three Daikin McQuay water-cooled centrifugal chillers, totaling 1,080 tons.
