At thismoment gas arrives at theport of BCN compressed, liquid and at -165ºC. To “re-gasify” this liquid, an interchange of temperature releases 30MW ! of ‘cold’ into the Mediterranean. The snowworld project wants to reuse this cold to produce snow and ice in a eco-friendly way
WITHOUT CO2 EMISSIONS
The project consist in a multi-use wintersportscomplex
-200 rooms Hotel
-Fitness and Wellness center
-2 conference hall and offices
-a shopping area
-2 Ice rinks
-1 Indoor Skitrack 300 mt long 50 mt high.
With complete integration in the urban landscape of the harbor combined with a total sustainable approach. The structure outside the huge volume of the skitrack allowed us to design a really airtight volume, with no thermal bridges.
This fact make also possible to design a great inside space, free of beams and pipeworks (unlike every other indoor skitrack in the world).
The energy source for cooling is ZERO CO2 emission, and moreover the position INSIDE the city avoids the need for using cars, enhancing the pubblic transportation in a area in developement.
Other important facts are that we are Creating synergies in a compact ‘smartcity’, increasing the neighborhood quality.
the project has been designed according to ASHRAE , LEED and VERDE certification criteria.
