A multinational PC and printing organization needed an energy efficient HVAC system for their new installation in Barcelona that would offer comfort, flexibility and efficiency.


Working with the consultant and the contractor, Trane delivered and installed 4 high efficiency cooling and heating units for the new building:

• 2 Sintesis™ Advantage CXAF 190 air-to-water heat pumps
A chiller and heat pump in one single package - the reversible technology lowers installation and operating costs by satisfying summer and winter demands with a single unit.

• 2 Sintesis™ RTAF 205 air-cooled chillers with Partial heat recovery
The screw compressor chiller combines exceptional efficiency with smart operation ensuring low operating costs.

With the Heat Recovery option, the RTAF units operate as a standard chiller as long as heat is not required or can simultaneously produce chilled and hot water for use in other applications.


The four installed cooling and heating units are part of the Sintesis™ family offering multiple technologies, exceptional performances and proven reliability. They provide industry performance and flexibility ensuring our customer a perfect fit to their building and application requirements but also to their sustainability and budget targets. The additional Partial Heat Recovery option ensures even greater energy efficiency.
