GIAA installing 4-ton cooling units

Guam - The Guam International Airport Authority has started installing four five-ton package units to help cool things off in the concourse and passenger screening lobby. Three of the facility's air handling units recently went down causing things to heat up. 

Board chairman Mike Ysrael says the operationally deficient units will be replaced but the large Port-A-Cool fan systems throughout the terminal should help cool things down while the new units are replaced within the next six months. "In the medium term, they will be replacing the large air handling units on top of the airport which were partially damaged in 2002 by Typhoon Pongsona and in turn deteriorated over time, so they basically no longer work properly," he explained.

Ysrael says once the deficient units are replaced and in operation, the units will then serve as a backup to the upgraded air cooling system.
