Dynasty sued for not paying $368K for chill water-cooling system


An air-conditioning company is suing the owner of Tinian Dynasty Hotel and Casino for allegedly failing to pay $368,487.71 over the replacement of Tinian Dynasty complex’s chill water-cooling system.

JWS Air Conditioning & Refrigeration asked the Superior Court to hold Hong Kong Entertainment Investment Ltd., owner of Tinian Dynasty, liable to pay $368,487.71 plus pre-judgment interest and post judgment interest.

JWS, through counsel Kimberlyn King-Hinds, requested the court to find probable cause for lien to attach to Tinian Dynasty’s property, sufficient in amount to cover costs for unpaid equipment, mechanical and electrical design plans, corresponding contractual costs, as well as costs and reasonable attorney’s fees incurred in bringing this action.

According to King-Hinds, HKE contracted for the replacement of Tinian Dynasty’s chill water system in accordance with the mechanical room and electrical layout design furnished by JWS and approved by HKE.

King-Hinds said pursuant to the contract, JWS furnished three 500-ton Rotary Screw VFD chillers, four corresponding chill water pump, four condenser water pumps, and the electrical and mechanical design layout plans for the installation of the chill water cooling system.

In exchange, HKE contracted JWS to pay $992,958 in installment payments.

HKE, however, allegedly failed to pay a portion of the installments.

King-Hinds said despite demand, HKE has failed and refused to pay amounts due and owing.
