Ancillary Facilities

The ancillary facilities at CERMI are used for teaching purposes.

Absorption air conditioning system using solar thermal energy

This system uses an absorption chiller that takes advantage of the heat produced by the solar thermal system to cool the water used in the building's air conditioning system. The air conditioning system is controlled by a technical management system that allows you to program it according to the desired time.
