179 Queen St, Melbourne

11 storey office block that has gone ‘green’. A new 200kW micro turbine gas generator by Capstone meets part of the building electricity need during the day and at night, feeds power back into the supply grid. Excess heat from the flue gas is delivered to either a Thermax absorption chiller or into the HHW system.

Tridum integrates prexisting Alerton MSTP which now act as dumb IO, power metering, VSDs via modbus RTU, the generator via modbus TCP and 2 PowerPax chillers via BacnetIP
