Electro-Mechanical Systems:

  • The energy saving criteria included in the design reduces the annual energy consumption used for cooling by 36%compared to traditional buildings.
  • The terminal consumes 294 m3 of hot water per day, and rooftop solar panels generate 46% of the energy needed to heat the water.
  • The wastewater from the laundries is collected and treated to provide 30% of the water needed for the toilets.
  • The water consumption of the terminal is equivalent to 1325 m3 per day, with a capacity of 25 million passengers per year. Through the pool of water consumed in the washbasins in the bathrooms and the water from the condensate, the water consumption was reduced by 50% inside the building.
