Section 1

Project Description

The Pearl, Qatar is a 400 hectare man-made island located off the Eastern coast of Qatar
approximately 20 kilometers north of the Doha central business district and east of the West Bay
Lagoon. The Pearl Island is connected to the mainland by a causeway. This island is being
developed (United Development Company) to include residential and commercial usage arranged
around three primary marinas, including hotels, shops, and residential villas and apartments.

The roads and infrastructure for The Pearl Island development were completed under a separate
contract to support the entire island. The road work consists of roads, bridges, underpass,
culverts, surface water drainage, signage, and roadway lighting. The infrastructure work consists
of potable water, sanitary sewer, irrigation transmission, chilled water distribution,
telecommunications civil work, and electrical distribution.

Chilled water has been a primary medium for the transfer of heat from building coils to the
refrigeration system since the beginning of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning design.
Providing chilled water from a centrally located plant is an energy efficient and low maintenance
means of rejecting heat from air-conditioning systems across a localized campus, whether that
campus is a university setting, industrial complex, or large urban site. Over the last five years or
more, district energy has exploded on to the scene in the Middle East becoming a necessary
utility for new developments.

The Integrated District Cooling Plant (IDCP) at The Pearl Project includes a new central chilled
water plant to serve the cooling needs for the proposed building construction on the island. Qatar
Cool will own and operate this plant upon completion and have established a design-build

Q06024-IDCP-RPT-GT-001-REV 3 1-1 Stanley Consultants


contract with C.A.T. International for the construction of this plant. The new development
consists of several high-rise buildings and villas, which will use the chilled water from the IDCP
to serve their air-conditioning needs in the most efficient manner possible. Each building will
include an energy transfer station or heat exchanger as the point of use for chilled water.

The chilled water generated at this facility will be provided for the following:
Customer loads at energy transfer stations or heat exchangers.
Customer loads at valve pits (Take-off Chambers).
Plant cooling system including, air handling units and fan coil units.

The IDCP is arranged on site to accommodate the construction of the buildings and the island
roads and infrastructure and the plant will architecturally be tied into the aesthetics of the
surrounding building structures. The plant will have a guaranteed capacity of 115,000 tons
expandable to 120,000 tons (ARI Tolerance) using forty-six (23 pairs) 2,500-ton nominal electric
motor-driven centrifugal chillers. Provisions will be incorporated into the design of the IDCP for
future expansion using two 2,500-ton nominal electric motor-driven chillers. The chillers will be
in a series-series, counter flow arrangement utilizing a direct primary pumping scheme.

The heat picked up by the chiller refrigeration cycles will be rejected via twenty-four 5,000-ton
cooling tower cells. Each cooling tower cell will serve up to two chillers and will be piped in a
headered arrangement such that each cell can be used with any combination of chillers. The
cooling towers will be constructed of fiberglass and will be field-erected on the roof of the plant
to conserve space on the site for other use. Aesthetic enhancements to the new building will
visually compliment the architecture of the area per UDC approval.

Utilities serving the IDCP will be installed by the Infrastructure Contractor under a separate
contract with the Owner. The chilled water distribution system will routed to a vault at the limits
of the plant site as depicted in the Conceptual Design Drawings.

The plant will hydraulically operate as two independent facilities; each connected to new
underground chilled water distribution systems. Chilled water will be delivered to network
through a constant flow, direct primary pumping scheme. The Pearl Chilled Water Distribution
System will be a looped, underground distribution network served by the IDCP and installed
under a separate infrastructure contract as described above.

New high-voltage transformers will be provided by the infrastructure contractor and connected to
the IDCP to serve the power requirements of the plant.

The control system will utilize a SCADA control system for monitoring and operation of the new
equipment, except for the chillers, which will be started locally. This system will allow control of
the new facility from operator workstations, located in the new plant control room. The system
will utilize digital communications for remote monitoring and/or control of the various systems
within the plant.

Mechanical Design Statement

General
This section of the Design Intent Report includes the narrative description of the chilled water
plant process, heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, plumbing, and fire suppression systems for
the Integrated District Cooling Plant (IDCP) at The Pearl, Qatar. Discussions between the
Owner, Qatar Cool, PMC, the Contractor, C.A.T. International (CAT), and the Design-Build
Engineer, Stanley Consultants are detailed in Exhibit A Project Correspondence.

Compliance Statement
The Mechanical design will comply with all portions of the Tender Documents prepared for Qatar
Cool and issued by DAR during the tender phase. These documents include the general
requirements, tender specifications, room data sheets, tender drawings, and the appropriate
addendums and tender circulars issued for clarification, except as noted below:
Plant Arrangement: The IDCP will be based upon the plant arrangement from the
Alternate 2 bid proposed by CAT and accepted by Qatar Cool prior to contract award.
Thermal Storage: Thermal storage was eliminated from the project with Alternate 2 bid
proposed by CAT and accepted by Qatar Cool.
Number of Chillers: Thermal storage was removed with the Alternate 2 bid proposed by
CAT and accepted by Qatar Cool. To make up the difference in capacity the number of
chillers was increased over what was shown on the Tender Drawings and listed in
Section 60, Paragraph 15.1.4.2.b of the Tender Specifications.
Chiller Arrangement: The chillers will be arranged in pairs using a series-series, counter-
flow arrangement instead of the series-parallel counter-flow arrangement indicated on the
Tender Drawings and Section 9, Paragraph1.1.17.1 of the Tender Specifications.

Q06024-IDCP-RPT-ME-001-REV 3 5-1 Stanley Consultants


Chiller Water Boxes: The chiller refrigerant condenser and refrigerant evaporator will be
provided with non-marine type water boxes instead of the marine-type water boxes
indicated in Section 60, Paragraph 15.2.7.4.a of the Tender Specifications. In the absence
of the marine water boxes, the chiller tubes can be accessed by removal of the connecting
pipes at the chiller by means of grooved-end lock (Victaulic) connections followed by
removal of the water box cover.
Chiller Connections: The chiller refrigerant condenser and refrigerant evaporator will be
provided with stub-out type connections and mechanical coupling grooves suitable for
bolted clamp-type coupling with grooved-end lock instead of flanged connections
indicated in Section 60, Paragraph 15.2.7.4.b of the Tender Specifications. See previous
exception for a discussion on access to the tubes.
Chiller Condenser Tube Cleaning: Each chiller condenser will include a tube brush
cleaning system that will scour the tubes clean by reversing the flow through the
condenser using automatic control valves as shown in the piping configuration on the
Drawings (Q06024-IDCP-M-I-614). The Tender Drawings show the use of four-way
valves for this operation; however, four-way valves are not available in the sizes needed.
Number of Cooling Towers: Thermal storage was removed with the Alternate 2 bid
proposed by CAT and accepted by Qatar Cool. To make up the difference in capacity the
number of cooling towers was increased over what was shown on the Tender Drawings
and listed in Section 60, Paragraph 16.1.4.1.a of the Tender Specifications.
Cooling Tower Design Conditions: The cooling tower flow rate to each cell will be
11,000 gpm and the condenser water temperature differential will be 13F. The flow rate
and range differ from those specified in Section 60, Paragraph 16.3.9 (3 gpm per ton at a
10F range). The design conditions selected allow for a higher cooling tower capacity per
square foot of building and provides the guaranteed capacity and efficiency at the chiller.
Alternate design conditions to the traditional 3 gpm per ton are becoming more prevalent
for this reason. Reference Optimizing Condenser Water Flow Rates presented by Bill
Liegois at the 2006 IDEA Campus Energy Conference.
Number of Basins: Each cooling tower will be divided into three basins at the building
control joint locations. This differs from the Tender Drawings which shows two
independent basins for each cooling tower. This modification is necessary to
accommodate the structural design of the building. Each of the three basins will be
connected by equalization lines for common level control.
Condenser Water Filtration: The condenser water system will include three side-stream
centrifugal filter separators for each 12-cell cooling tower connected to the respective
supply headers. The side-stream flow rate will be equal to 10 percent of the total
condenser water flow rate. The Tender Drawings show smaller units both on the headers
and at each chiller.
Chilled Water Pumping Scheme: The chilled water pumping scheme will be a direct
primary (constant speed) system that varies flow to the distribution system by staging
chillers and pumps on and off. This differs from the Tender Drawings and Section 60,
Paragraph 9.3.5 of the Tender Specifications, which calls for a primary-secondary system.

Q06024-IDCP-RPT-ME-001-REV 3 5-2 Stanley Consultants


This modification will provide a more energy efficient system by eliminating the neutral
bridge bypass, which can lower chilled water return temperatures and contribute to the
phenomenon known as Low T Syndrome.
Air Separation: DAR requested Stanley Consultants to provide technical justification for
the elimination of the air separators from the IDCP. ASHRAE is not specific regarding
the use of air separators within chilled water systems, except in regards to smaller building
type systems. Roy Ahlegren of ITT Industries gave a presentation for the University of
Wisconsin's Chilled Water Plants for Central District Cooling Seminar in April 2006. He
identified the following advantages of closed loop systems as they relate to air
entrapment:
- Oxygen additions are limited due to the lack of interface between air and water during
normal operation.
- Pressures and temperatures minimize air coming out of solution within systems. This
is not the case for heating systems, which typically require air separation.
- The use of bladder-type expansion tanks further reduces the interface between air and
water.
- Permanent energy penalty due to pressure drop of separators.

Chilled Water Strainers: The Tender Specifications (Section 60, Paragraph 14.2.4.2)
indicate that basket strainers are to be provided for the chilled water system. However,
the vertical dimensions of the basket strainers are not conducive to making the equipment
connections. Stanley Consultants recommends using Tee Strainers in lieu of the basket
type to resolve this conflict. The tee strainers will be in compliance with the performance
requirements of the basket strainers as specified (i.e. 5/32 perforations).

General
The Integrated District Cooling Plant at The Pearl Project includes a new central chilled
water plant to serve the cooling needs for the proposed building construction on the island.
The new development consists of several high-rise buildings and villas, which will use the
chilled water from the IDCP to serve their air-conditioning needs. Each building will include
an energy transfer station and/or heat exchanger as the point of use for chilled water.

The IDCP is an independent chilled water plant designed for an ultimate capacity of
120,000 tons and an initial capacity of 115,000 tons. The size and number of the chillers
were selected based upon the Alternate 2 Bid proposed by CAT and accepted by Qatar Cool
prior to award of the contract. These discussions resulted in the decision to use 2,500-ton
nominal electric motor-driven centrifugal chillers arranged in pairs using a series-series,
counter-flow configuration. To achieve the initial capacity, the plant will include 23 chiller
pairs arranged as shown on Drawings (Q06024-IDCP-A-101). Provisions will be
incorporated into the design of the IDCP for the future expansion of the plant to its ultimate
capacity using one additional chiller pair. The main equipment and auxiliaries for the IDCP
include:
Chillers Arranged in pairs using a series-series, counter-flow configuration.
Cooling Towers.
Chilled Water Distribution Pumps (Constant Speed).
Condenser Water Pumps (Constant Speed).
Refrigerant Transfer Unit with Pump-Out Receiver.
Reverse Osmosis (R.O.) Equipment (i.e. Salt Water R.O. Units, Brackish Water R.O.
Units, Sand Filters, Pumps, and Tanks).
Continuous Condenser Water Filtration Equipment.
Water Treatment System.
Cooling Tower Blowdown System.
Electrical Switchgear, Transformers, etc. (see Section 6).
Plant Control System (see Section 7).

Chillers
Forty-six (23 pairs) 2,500-ton nominal electric motor-driven centrifugal chillers will be
installed as a part of this project. Chiller pairs will be rated in accordance with ARI 550/590
based upon the specified ARI and zero tolerance performance. In addition, the chillers will
operate without loss of capacity at ambient temperatures as high as 104F. Each chiller will
be factory assembled and tested and located as shown on the Drawings (Q06024-IDCP-A-
101). The chillers will be designed to cool 7,500 gpm (1.5 gpm per ton) of chilled water from
56F to 40F and reject that heat to 11,000 gpm (2.2 gpm per ton) of condenser water. The
design water temperature rise across the condenser will be from 92F to 105F.

Q06024-IDCP-RPT-ME-001-REV 3 5-4 Stanley Consultants


The chiller compressor will not exceed a sound pressure level of 85 dBA at a distance of
3 feet from the compressor, condenser, and evaporator during full load operation. This sound
pressure level is based upon a reference pressure of 20 micro-pascals.

In addition, the chillers will be used in a direct-primary (constant speed) pumping scheme
consisting of pumps that are operated in conjunction with the chillers. This will allow the
system to vary the total flow to match the load of the distribution system, but maintain a
constant flow through the chiller evaporator. Refer to Section 7 for Control Systems Design
Statement.

The refrigeration cycle will utilize R-134a or R-123 as its refrigerant and the chiller
components and auxiliaries are as follows:
Refrigerant Condenser
Refrigerant Evaporator
Economizer (As Required)
Compressor
Couplings
Compressor Motors
Auxiliary Motors
Purge System (R-123 Only)
Vacuum Prevention System (R-123 Only)
Compressor Motor Starters
Auxiliary Motor Starters
Control System
Accessories and Associated Piping
Structural Steel Base with Seismic Restraints and Vibration Isolation Devices

The condensers and evaporators will be of horizontal, shell and tube design in a single-pass
configuration. The design will be stamped in accordance with ASME Section VIII.

Shell, tube sheets and supports will be constructed of carbon steel and the tubes of seamless
copper. Tubes will be 3/4-inch OD enhanced bore with integral fins and have a maximum
fouling factor of 0.00025. In addition, the evaporator and condenser pressure drop will not
exceed 15 feet of head loss.

Each chiller condenser will include a tube brush cleaning system that will scour the tubes
clean by reversing the flow through the condenser using automatic control valves as shown in
the piping configuration on the Drawings (Q06024-IDCP-M-I-614).

The water boxes will be of welded, non-marine carbon steel construction with mechanical
coupling grooves suitable for welding or bolted clamp-type coupling. Refrigerant side relief

valves will be provided and designed in accordance with ANSI B9.1/ASHRAE 15 safety
code.

A refrigerant sub-cooler or flash-type economizer will be provided with the chillers, at


manufacturers option, to improve cycle efficiency.

The compressor will be open or hermetic drive, horizontally-split centrifugal-type, and driven
by an electric motor. Open drive motors will be totally enclosed, water cooled (TEWAC)
type using condenser water at a temperature of 92F.

The chiller will be guaranteed to provide 100 percent of rated capacity for any given pair of
chillers, while not exceeding 0.748 kW per ton of electrical usage. Performance testing will
be conducted in accordance with the latest edition of ARI 550/590.

Cooling Towers
Two, 12-cell, 60,000-ton cooling tower cells will be installed as a part of this project.
Condenser water leaving the chillers enters the tower through the distribution header and is
discharged through nozzles. The water falls through the fill, while air is drawn up to the fan
stack in a counter-flow fashion. Heat is rejected to the air through an evaporative cooling
process. Air is drawn through each cooling tower at a design inlet wet bulb temperature of
87F to provide the required evaporative cooling.

The cooling tower cells will be located on the roof of the plant and designed as an integral
architectural element of the facility. Exterior treatments will blend with the overall
architectural theme of the plant.

The tower components include:


Fan
Motor (Variable Speed)
Fill
PVC Drift Eliminators
Distribution Piping and Nozzles
Concrete Basin and Fiberglass Walls
Internal Support System
Chemical Water Treatment System
The cooling towers will be designed for wind loading in accordance with the 1997 UBC for
90 miles per hour wind and an exposure D. In addition, the cooling towers will be designed
in accordance with the 1997 UBC for a Seismic Zone 2A.

The tower cells will be constructed of double wall, FRP using structural shapes of pultruded
fiberglass components having a flame spread rating of less than 25. The tower basin will be
elevated above the roof level to allow for adequate clearance for the condenser water pumps
and will be constructed of concrete.

Q06024-IDCP-RPT-ME-001-REV 3 5-6 Stanley Consultants


Each cooling tower cell will be divided into three basins at the building control joint
locations. These basins will be connected through equalization lines that will be designed to
maintain a maximum differential in water levels of 1 inch.

The fans will be multi-blade propeller type constructed of fiberglass blades and an epoxy
coated, galvanized steel hub. The fan will be electric motor-driven through reduction gears
and a variable frequency drive (VFD). The fan motors will be totally enclosed, fan-cooled
(TEFC) type and located outside of the air stream. The variable speed drive allows for load-
following at the tower as well as reduction in ambient noise during off-peak cooling hours.

The heat transfer medium will be cross-corrugated polyvinyl chloride (PVC). In addition, the
cooling towers will include multi-pass, wave form drift eliminators constructed of PVC and
capable of reducing the cooling tower drift to 0.0005 percent of the condenser water flow
rate.

The cooling tower distribution system and nozzles will provide an even distribution of water
over the fill and be capable of allowing flow reductions down to 50 percent of design flow
without modifications or adjustments. In addition, the pressure drop across a nozzle will not
exceed 2 psid.

The cooling towers will be guaranteed to provide 100 percent of rated capacity at the design
conditions listed above. Performance testing will be conducted by an independent impartial
third party in accordance with the latest edition of CTI Publication ATC-105.

Silica (SiO2): Negligible.
Maximum Water Temperature: 110F.

Cooling tower blowdown will be based upon two to six cycles of concentration depending
upon the operating scenario. The sanitary system will be sized accordingly.

Chilled Water Pumping Scheme


The chilled water pumping scheme will be of direct primary design with constant speed
distribution pumps. It consists of a single, variable volume chilled water loop, which
combines the chilled water plant and distribution systems. In order to vary chilled water flow
to match cooling load (position of two-way control valves), this pumping scheme allows the
flow from the plant to adapt to varying distribution conditions instead of having an
independent secondary loop. The chilled water pumps perform double duty by both
circulating chilled water through the chillers as well as the piping network. The flow is
varied by adjusting the quantity of chillers/pumps that are in operation.

Each chilled water distribution pump serves a dedicated chiller pair and will be sized for
7,500 gpm (16F T), 330 feet of head (estimated), and a maximum motor power of 900 Hp.

The pumps will be motor-driven centrifugal, horizontal split case type with double suction
and single stage features. The casing will be cast or ductile iron as required for the maximum
working pressure. The impeller will be constructed of bronze, fully enclosed, and
dynamically balanced. The pumps will include single, cartridge-type mechanical seals, each
with an API Plan 11 mechanical seal flushing system. Pump motors will be in accordance
with IP 54 and non-overloading throughout the entire pump curve. The pump efficiency will
not be less than 85 percent.

Condenser Water Pumping Scheme


Condenser water pumps will be installed in a headered arrangement to allow any cooling
tower cell to serve any chiller on a given condenser water system. These pumps will be
located on the roof at each cooling tower cell and the pump discharges connected in the
headered arrangement. The condenser water piping enters the IDCP through two pipe shafts
located in the center of the roof, as shown on the Drawings (Q06024-IDCP-MP-104).

Each condenser water pump serves a dedicated cooling tower and will be sized for
11,000 gpm (13F T), 115 feet of head (estimated), and a maximum motor power of
400 Hp.

The pumps will be motor-driven centrifugal, vertical turbine type. The discharge head
assembly will be constructed of high grade cast iron or fabricated steel and include an ANSI
Class 150 discharge flange. The impeller will be constructed of silicon bronze, enclosed or
semi-open, and dynamically balanced. Pump motors will be in accordance with IP 54 and
non-overloading throughout the entire pump curve. The pump efficiency will not be less than
80 percent.

Q06024-IDCP-RPT-ME-001-REV 3 5-8 Stanley Consultants


Piping System
As previously stated, the chilled water piping system will be arranged in a direct primary
fashion. The chilled water and condenser water pipe sizing will, in general, be based upon
the following criteria:
Maximum design velocity of 15 feet per second.
Maximum head loss of 2.0 feet per 100 feet of pipe.

The piping will be constructed of carbon steel, designed in accordance with the requirements
of ASME B31.1 and shall have a minimum thickness of standard weight pipe, but wall
thickness will be sufficient for the pressure class of the system.

The major chilled water piping headers will be 48-inch diameter and will be located within
trenches. This maintains a clean operating floor and simplifies normal operation and
maintenance functions within the plant. The major condenser water headers will be 60-inch
diameter and are located above the center access aisle. These headers will be supported from
structural steel below that is directly connected to the columns. See Drawing Q06024-IDCP-
MP-100.

The chilled water system is divided into two hydraulically independent loops, each of which
serves the looped network piping system. Two separate pairs of chilled water headers leave
the IDCP and connect independently into the network piping. Each of the two headered
systems will include a bypass line between the supply and return headers with a self-
contained, back-pressure regulating valve. The purpose of this valve is to protect the chilled
water system from over pressurization.

Manual isolation within the system will typically be through the use of butterfly valves in
accordance with Section 60, Paragraph 7.2.5. Wafer-style check valves will be included at
the discharge of each pump. All valves will be rated in accordance with the system design
pressure and temperature.

Pipe supports for the IDCP will be in accordance with Section 60, Part 8 of the Tender
Specifications as well as the applicable MSS Standards.

Chemical Treatment System


The chemical treatment system shall include corrosion coupons, conductivity sensors, make-
up water system and metering, chemical storage, piping, and injection equipment.

The chilled water system will be treated for protection against corrosion as a primary
consideration and microbiological growth as a secondary consideration. Corrosion within the
chilled water system will be controlled at 2 mpy maximum. Chemicals will be injected into
the system using suitable sized, skid-mounted dosing pumps.

The condenser water system will be treated for protection against deposition, corrosion, and
microbiological growth. Corrosion within the condenser water system will be controlled at
3 mpy. Microbiological growth will be controlled using biocide and effective bio-dispersant,
as required, to operate at pH above 8.0.

Q06024-IDCP-RPT-ME-001-REV 3 5-9 Stanley Consultants


Condenser water chemical treatment system shall include conductivity controlled bleed
down, level controls, dosing pumps for bio-dispersant and chlorine donor, chemical storage
tanks, and controls. Chemicals will be injected into the system using suitable sized, skid-
mounted dosing pumps.

Miscellaneous
In addition to the main equipment and piping, the process is supported by several auxiliary
systems:
A mobile refrigerant transfer unit with pump-out receiver sized for the refrigerant
charge of one chiller when the tank is 80 percent filled with refrigerant at 122F.
Chilled water expansion tanks will be provided on the system to allow for the thermal
expansion and contraction of the water. The pressure at the expansion tanks will be set
based upon maintaining a minimum of 4 psig at the highest elevation within the
system.
Chilled water make-up will be provided from the site potable water service and
connected to the system at the expansion tank location.
Cooling tower make-up water will be provided from a combination of three sources:
- Site Potable Water: 5,000 cubic meters per day (920 gpm).
- Reverse Osmosis (R.O. System): 7,000 cubic meters per day (1,285 gpm).
- Treated Sewage Effluent (TSE): 10,000 cubic meters per day (1,835 gpm).

Reverse Osmosis (R.O.) System


A portion of the cooling tower make-up water will be supplied from a Reverse Osmosis system
located with the IDCP. Sea water will be pumped from a sea water pump station near the IDCP
and supply salt water to the raw water tank located within the basement of the plant. This raw
water is then treated and blended with site potable water and treated sewage effluent (TSE) to
provide the total make-up water needs for the cooling towers.

The R.O. water treatment system will be designed as a complete clean-in-place skid, sufficient to
produce 7,000-cubic meters per day (1,285 gpm) of finished water and will be capable of
continuous operation.

The gulf sea water will be supplied at a nominal salinity of 47,000 mg/l total dissolved solids at a
temperature range of 68F to 97F. The R.O. system product water salinity will be less than
500 mg/l total dissolved solids under all pressure and temperature conditions with a minimum
40 percent recovery of feed water flow.

At a minimum, the R.O. System will consist of the following:


Feed Water Chlorination
Feed Water Pre-Treatment Filtration
De-Chlorination Chemical Feed System
