The pool of La Rochelle has been inaugurated in 1972. As always and everywhere, the dehumidification of the
hall remains the main issue. Originally, the dehumidification needs were fulfiled with fresh air loads, process
which spoils a lot of energy.
In 1982, the town council launched a programme of energy saving. Therefore, a heat pump took over from the
first equipment. In spite of this, there were permanently condensation on the window screen.
The town realised afterwards that the fresh air section of the chosen heat pump was undersized, while the
compressors stopped often.
So, a new system was to be found again to dehumidify properly the hall. The EcoModulG+ equipment were
selected to improve the installation.
The occasion to improve the buildings arises when another workyard was set up on the pool: the cleaning
of the frame work from asbestos. A huge scaffolding under the roof allows to install new ducts.
