Green Features of Kai Tak Cruise Terminal

Green features in relation to conservation of energy and adoption of renewable energy include:

  • The Cruise Terminal Building utilizes the Kai Tak District Cooling System (DCS) as its main chilled water circulation system. There are DCS sub-stations in the terminal to cater for the air-conditioning required for the terminal operation facilities and commercial area.
  • The carriageway on the ground and first floors are naturally ventilated, with wind flows assisted by ceiling mounted extraction fans along the boundary.
  • The main heating plant for the air-conditioning is provided by water-to-water heat pumps in energy efficient manner.
  • Solar panels and photovoltaic panels for renewable energy sources.
  • Rainwater and A/C condensate water recycling assist in reducing the potable water demand for irrigation.
  • Landscape roof decks to minimize the heat island effect.
  • Curved building facades with triangular-shaped low-e double glazing, maximizing view while optimizing the heat gain.
  • A number of atria and large skylights to draw natural light to the building.
  • A portion of external lighting at the roof garden area is provided by solar energized lighting system.
  • Kai Tak Cruise Terminal has been awarded a BEAM Plus Platinum rating (a comprehensive environmental assessment scheme for buildings recognized by the HKGBC, Hong Kong Green Building Council).
