Piri Reis Martime University / Tuzla, Istanbul

EPITOME OF MODERN EDUCATION IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY CAMPUS,

WITH ITS CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY AND STATE OF ART DESIGN 

WE ARE HERE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Piri Reis maritime University is the first and only specialized maritime university in Turkey established by the, Turkish Chamber of Shipping through the non-profit Turkish Maritime Education Foundation (TUDEV). The new campus in Tuzla is where world class education and research is being carried out on environmentally friendly grounds.

The maritime university is ranked among the first 20 universities in the world and aims to be the epitome of modern education.  University is designed to make a difference in its district.  With the cutting edge technology the university will produce its own energy needs, hence above the country’s standards. University’s goal is to receive the world’s foremost environmental assessment BREEAM certificate with a VERY GOOD standing with its high quality standards. Project will contribute to country’s development upon completion and it gives its best to minimize the potential damage to the environment. Maritime Faculty is composed of five buildings, which include a conference hall, sports and recreational facilities and can accommodate up to 4.500 students. Project has a 52.00 m² construction base within a 25.715 m² land and 7.734 m² of this land was designed to be green space in the project.

Applied Maritime Education center (UDEM) consists of; simulators, laboratories, workshops, training pool and administration offices.   University is designed to accommodate virtual ship simulations, test laboratory ship navigation and ship maintenance trainings. 

Training pool will have dual purpose and can be used for recreational swimming as well as a wave simulator. Students will learn rescue and survival techniques in the pool. In the upcoming future the pool will also be utilized to educate scuba divers.

Green Planet

World maritime education attach importance to environmental and sea pollution, by international rules, MARPOL/SOLAS etc. PRU is the first education building which has BREEAM certificate.

The basic features of the building; the establishment of the system of natural resources will make available again, the use of solar energy , solar, electric batteries, providing a part of the lighting optimally using, environmental regulation will need to be designed to be the minimum water; a very special material which is reuse or recyle, use construction; innovation as the use of tri-generation power plant, tri-generation system will be provided with gas/diesel generator waste heat is kept minimal air pollution with warming, absorption cooling and water-source heat pump in heating/cooling energy efficiency high on campus by using dirty water used in watering can be counted on to use the environment.

 Sera Yapi is the main contractor of the project and they have an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Certificate. During the construction process to reduce the environmental impacts all ISO 14001 requirements are integrated. Moreover, construction site is managed accordance with the requirement and checklists of the the BREEAM International Bespoke 2008 manual, issue of Man 2-Considerate Constructors and Man 3 – Construction Site Impacts. All requirements of the checklist A2 and checklist A3 are implemented on construction site.

According to the environmental materials policy of Sera Yapi, during the construction all materials were puchased from local suppliers and responsibly sourced materials were used. Non-toxic materials & refrigerants with a low global warming potential materials were used to provide health environment.

Sera Yapi operates an Environmental Management System covering our main operations. The EMS is certified by ISO14001/EMAS standard. Accordance with the EMS, waste management and waste minimisation were implemented on site by use of recycling materials and re use of materials.

Construction site of the Piri Reis University adopted best practice procedures in relation to minimizing the air/dust pollution from Piri Reis University. These procedures are listed below;

At the pre-construction period, soils that extract from excavation have been sent to municipality’s recovery and storage facilities, thereby preventing and minimising the air/dust

pollution.Some of them are storage on the site for use landscaping because included clay and it is useful for landscaping

 For preventation of the dust pollution, irrigation method were used for regular damping down of the roads during the hot weather. In the winter stabilized materials were used for muddy site and also wheel of the cars have been washing on the exit of the site to preventation of make the pollution to the out of site.

Occupational health and safety materials such as dust masks were used and construction areas were screened for preventation of the dust that occured from indoor demolition of the building construction. 

The Maritime Faculty at Piri Reis University is a specialized institution where deck and engineering department officers of the merchant navy are educated and trained.

In the Deck Department, deck officers are trained in a program leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Maritime Transportation and Management”, whereas the Marine Engineering Department trains engineering officers leading to the degree “Bachelor of Science in Marine Engineering Operations”.

Degrees and certificates issued by the Piri Reis University’s Maritime Faculty are fully compliant with the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW standards) set by the International Maritime Organization IMO).

The maritime university is ranked among the first 20 universities in the world and aims to be the epitome of modern education. University is designed to make a difference in its district. With the cutting edge technology the university will produce its own energy needs, hence above the country’s standards.

Heating-Cooling Energy Supply

Building heating energy will be produced by a trigeneration system. The system meets the minimum standards defined in EU CHP directive

40% of the buildings electricity comes from the trigeneration system. The trigeneration system is used with natural gas.

Total building heating demand…………….3.703.322 W

Total building electricity demand…………..4 MW

Electricity produced by the trigeneration system.. 1600 kVA

Unit quantity : 2 (800 kWe each)

Total heating capacity (95-75 C) : 1.600 kWh

Electrical efficiency (Minimum) : %45

Heating efficiency (Minimum) : %50

Total efficiency (Minimum) : %95

The cooling energy of the buildings will be supplied by 2 units absorption chillers which will work with cogeneration system.

Cooling capacity (each) : 560 kW (2 units)

Generator working temperature : 95–75 C

                                                Solar Panels for Domestic Hot Water Heating

Domestic hot water, will be supplied by solar panels that are located on the roof.

Total building domestic hot water demand…………….: 10.586 l/h

Solar panels domestic hot water capacity.…………….: 11.000 l/h

Solar panels domestic hot water heating capacity : (11.000/3600)x4,18x(45-10) = 447 kW

Building total heating capacity =3.703 kW 447/3.703 = 0,12

Solar panels supply %12 of building total heating capacity

 

                                           Grey Water Recycling System

All the grey water will be collected from showers and wash basins by a seperate grey water pipe line, and recycled to meet the WC/urinal flushing demand within PRU buildings A, B, C Blocks and UDEM.

 GREY WATER DEMAND CALCULATION FOR WC & URINALS

User number : 2764 people

Number of use for WC : 2764x1,3 = 3593 use

Number of use for urinal : (2764/2)x2 = 2764 use

WC cistern capacity : 3 lt/use

Urinal flush capacity : 1 lt/use

Total WC water demand : 3593x3 = 10779 lt.

Total urinal water demand : 2764x1 = 2764 lt.

Total grey water demand for WC & urinal flushing = 13543 lt.

Grey water tank capacity : 109.000 lt.
