Green Effort with Genting Group
Our environment is a heritage and our legacy that we all have inherited. This world we’re living in is not given by our fathers but borrowed from our children. Robert Swan, a polar explorer, environmentalist and the first man ever to walk unsupported to both the North and South Poles once says: “The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.” Therefore, it is our great honour to play a part in Genting First World Hotel & Resort project in the effort of building a greener environment.
Hot water supply is essential, especially in a cold weather place such as Genting Highlands. And hot water consumes energy! The main challenge is how we produce and consume energy resources effectively without polluting environment, or at least, to minimise its harm towards the environment. This is the concept we hold to design hot water system for First World Hotel & Resort.
With 7,000 rooms, First World Hotel is the largest hotel in Guinness World Records. Instead of implementing the traditional diesel boiler, the new Tower 3 which comprises of 1286 new rooms, has taken a giant step ahead to use renewable energy solution, and Intrix heat pump is chosen.
Contribution to the Environment
Intrix has always aimed to build a greener world for the next generation. In this particular project with Genting Group, Intrix heat pump system has achieved 72% or 6.6 Gigawatts hour energy saving per year compared to diesel boiler. The heat pump system implemented in First World Resort Tower 3 has also successfully reduced CO2 emission by 1,000 tonne per year, which is equivalent to carbon absorption capacity of 45 thousand trees every year!
