Water Cooling
Retreat: Soneva Fushi
Maldives > Baa


Air-conditioning has been the resort’s biggest energy consumer and the priority is to eliminate the carbon emissions. That’s why in 2008 we installed the first deep sea water cooling system that takes advantage of the cooling capacity of deep sea water using renewable energy. Cold water is pumped from marine depths, 3km west of Soneva Fushi, and low-impact fans enable to bring resort’s temperature down at a comfortable level.
