Air-con meltdown at RWS

Air-con meltdown at RWS



Theme park shuts early, shows cancelled and restaurants swelter as chiller units overheat.

By MaryAnn Soh, AsiaOne | Tue, May 31 2011


SINGAPORE - PARTS of Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) had to resort to portable air-con blowers when the air-conditioning failed yesterday.

Two shows were called off and at least 10 eateries were affected.

Universal Studios Singapore, which had its grand opening last Saturday, had to shut at 7pm, two hours before the official closing time at 9pm. The Straits Times (ST) reported that the theme park had planned for extended opening hours during weekdays for the June holiday period.

Shows by the resort's resident circus act, Voyage de la Vie, have also been cancelled for the next two days.

An RWS spokesperson told ST that the breakdown was due to overheating of chiller components of the resort's air-con units. He attributed the malfunction to "unusally hot weather".

He said RWS was trying to rectify the situation as soon as possible, adding that "these changes should have minimal impact on our normal operations."

It is unknown if there are back-up chillers, but the spokesperson said the resort has plans to acquire more of such units.

USS will shut at 7pm daily until further notice. Some shops and outlets might also be closed to operations during off-peak hours.

RWS expects air-conditioning system to be fully restored by Friday

RWS expects air-conditioning system to be fully restored by Friday

SINGAPORE : Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) said it expects its air-conditioning system to be fully restored by this Friday.

This came after the resort encountered a malfunction in the system's chilling units on Monday.

RWS said the impact has been minimal, as back-up systems are in place.

It will also be reviewing procedures to avoid a similar incident.

The integrated resort (IR) said it's due to a technical fault in the motor unit of its chilling system.

The resort uses a centralised system, so the problem is resort-wide.

Clement Ng, Senior Executive of Communications at Resorts World Sentosa said: "Our chiller units actually undergo regular maintenance and at the same time, they are monitored round the clock. However, the part at fault this time round is the motor, and the parts are not being observed during the regular maintenance. As such it triggered this incident.

"We view this incident very seriously and we will be stepping up and reviewing our provisions for air-conditioning as well as learning from this incident."

The resort said back-up chillers were activated once it got word of the situation. The move does not restore conditions to a 100 per cent, but it's expected to minimise the impact on visitors.

A family from Malaysia said their dining experience at the IR was affected.

"It's very humid, very hot inside so it's very uncomfortable, it's totally unacceptable. It made the dining experience very unsatisfactory," said a visitor.

At another store, a couple from New Zealand had a different view.

"It's very pleasant, we do not have a lot of air-conditioning from where we come from," said the New Zealand couple. "When you come inside, it cools you right down nicely."

The resort's Festive Hotel said business has not been affected and it has not received any complaints from guests.

"We are monitoring the situation very closely. Our room attendants are working on the floors. We have briefed (them) already to be in touch with us immediately if they notice the air-conditioning system is having problems. So we are monitoring from there and we will take corrective action," said Henry Cheah, director of Rooms, Festive Hotel, Resorts World Sentosa.

Still, the incident has had some impact.

Two shows of Voyage De La Vie had to be cancelled - with the next show slated for Friday.

RWS said some customers are seeking a refund, though numbers are small.

Visitors have the option to switch dates for other shows.

Universal Studios' extended operating hours of 10am to 9pm for the school holiday period will also resume on Friday.

It's unclear if tenants have lodged complaints for loss of business as a result of the incident.

RWS said it will work closely to assist them in providing a pleasant experience for guests.
