Energy efficiency for a London University after boiler plant was tested against regulations for educational buildings
By replacing the former modular boilers with fully-condensing modern units, the university now benefits from a more dependable and more efficient heating system presenting significant cost savings.
The previous boiler plant serving a part of this prestigious university in London had become unreliable and the client requested Aster Maintenance to undertake a complete renewal of the boilers and their control system.
The solution chosen
These new boilers had to be fitted into a small plant room and new flue arrangements installed. The new boilers were required to be available for service by the start of the heating season.
We chose Remeha Quinta Pro boilers for this project, due to their high efficiency and small footprint. These boilers have an integrated control system as an option and we chose this, so as to obtain the optimum performance from them.
The university now benefits from the improved reliability and performance of these boilers which is important for comfort and economy.
In accordance with current regulations for educational establishments, we installed automatic gas and CO detection equipment, which automatically shuts off the gas supply in the event that it detects a leak within the boiler room.
