Variable-Frequency Drives Important in Toronto Deep-Water Lake Project

November 2006
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Nov2006, Vol. 78 Issue 11, p61
The article highlights the significance of variable-frequency drives to the deep-water lake project initiated by Enwave District Energy Ltd. in Toronto, Ontario. Operation of every element the way it should makes the project successful according to Pat Cimek, E.S. Fox area manager. 59 megawatts of capacity are expected to be saved from the project.
