Xcel Energy Commissions first Helios Tube Cleaning System in Denver
The Helios TCS system was installed on a 2,500 ton Trane chiller employed to provide central cooling to commercial customers in downtown Denver. By reducing chiller inefficiency due to fouling, Xcel will not only improve cooling reliability, it will reduce its costs in delivery while increasing the quality of cooling delivery. As a further benefit, the Helios system will help Xcel achieve its ambitious sustainability goals by reducing its Green House Gas (GHG) emissions by 45% through 2021. In this case, this first Helios system will contribute by eliminating up to 10,000 tons of GHG emissions over next fifteen years through the prevention of chiller condenser fouling—equivalent to removing more than 2,250 cars from the road!
