Adveco Showcases New Hybrid Packaged Plant Rooms at CIBSE Build2Perform

  • Accelerate project timescales with offsite constructed heating, hot water and low carbon energy systems
  • Introducing packaged hybrid systems that help meet new carbon targets
  • Understand whether continued investment in gas infrastructure is still viable

Hot water and heating specialist Adveco, will be exhibiting its first hybrid packaged plant room systems for heating and hot water at CIBSE Build2Perform November 26th & 27th at Olympia, London. These bespoke designed systems, built into a weatherproof enclosure, not only maximise available space on a commercial project but also deliver system resilience, help reduce a building’s energy consumption and reduce operational costs.

Adveco’s plant rooms leverage technology from a range of partners including A.O. Smith, Cosmogas and cogeneration specialist TOTEM. Appliances are combined with Adveco’s own in-house designed control systems and industry recognised heat recovery technology, such as the HR001, a standalone Heat Recovery Unit providing a convenient, packaged unit to recover refrigerant system waste heat.

For the first time, Adveco will be showcasing a hybrid application that combines the new Adveco FPi Air Source Heat Pump with an A.O. Smith Innovo condensing room-sealed gas water heater and controls, enabling commercial sites to achieve lower cost heating or cooling.

An all-electric packaged plant room will also be on display alongside the popular MD high efficiency condensing gas boiler.

MD high efficiency condensing gas boiler - floor standing or wall mounted.Compact and lightweight, with low CO and NOₓ emission levels, MD is perfect for use in conjunction with an air source heat pump as part of a hybrid system, providing both sustainability and the operational responsiveness required by larger-scale commercial systems. With multiple load-balanced heat exchangers in a single chassis, MD offers peace of mind with built-in redundancy, all backed by a seven-year warranty on all parts and labour when commissioned by Adveco and a 10-year warranty on both the heat exchangers and the pre-mix burner.

Adveco’s Application Engineer Simon Bennet.On Wednesday afternoon, Adveco’s Application Engineer Simon Bennet will be helping designers facing the decision of whether to adopt all-electric for new buildings or outlay for a gas supply ready for conversion to hydrogen. A decision that could affect future carbon emissions and running costs for the lifetime of the building. Simon will outline the practical considerations to help decide whether the cost and the need to reduce carbon make continued investment in gas infrastructure viable for commercial new build projects.

MD boiler training session

Hands-on training at Adveco

Adveco has recently expanded its in-house training facilities, introducing the new MD compact floor-standing condensing gas boiler for hands-on practical demonstration. Great to see everyone getting stuck in during the latest training sessions, with lots of discussion about the varied applications for these boilers.

As well as in-depth training on our portfolio of appliances, we offer a range of CIBSE accredited Continuing Professional Development seminars on a wide range of topics.

Adveco Goes the Extra Mile when it comes to Training

Adveco usually provides a wide range of training resources, from Continuing Professional Development seminars to practical demonstrations of heating and hot water installations for gas engineers at our purpose built training facility within the company’s headquarters in Farnborough, Hampshire. When it is not feasible for customers to visit our headquarters, we are able to provide onsite technical training, which was a recent requirement for the Rendezvous ‘stolen time’ Hotel. This award-winning hotel has installed two A.O.Smith BFC120 fully room-sealed condensing high-efficiency water heater appliances along with solar preheat, all supplied by Adveco, to provide site-wide domestic hot water.

One of the world’s first boutique hotels dedicated to couples only, Rendezvous is located on Malabar beach, a two-mile stretch of golden sand on the Caribbean island of St Lucia. Our long-suffering technical team found themselves required to attend this elegant, luxurious island retreat. Despite the distractions of exotic Caribbean buffet meals, and sun-kissed hammocks swinging in the ocean breeze below the palm trees, they knuckled down and ran in-depth training for hotel engineers Joel Etienne, Alvin Volney, Mickael Charlouis, Roland Isaac, Cameron Asambert, and their manager Derrick Leslie. Together they support the facilities at Rendezvous and other hotels within the group.

For a hotel that prides itself in being the perfect, tranquil, luxury getaway, ensuring a readily available provision of hot water to the 100 guest suites, restaurants and bars is a critical part of daily operations. Adveco was pleased to be able to support the team on the ground to ensure they had all the necessary knowledge to support the consistent operation of the hotel’s new hot water system.


Adveco.Adveco offer training for heating and hot water and water engineers, on site or at our premises.

Hybrid Hot Water & Power, The Future for Existing Buildings

The UK Government has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050, relative to 1990 levels. While much focus has been placed on the application of renewable technologies for new and off-gas grid domestic dwellings throughout the 2020s, by far the greatest potential for addressing change comes through the refurbishment of systems within existing buildings. Especially those throughout the commercial sector that exhibit high, consistent demand for hot water, heat and power.

What then is the answer to reducing carbon in existing buildings?

In its latest seminar – The Effect of Lower Carbon Intensity Electricity on Renewable Technologies for Existing Buildings – Adveco considers how the addition of solar thermal, combined heat and power (CHP) cogeneration or heat pumps can support existing gas systems, and address air quality and reduction of carbon emissions from existing building stock while providing operational cost savings.

Committed to partnering with its commercial and government customers, Adveco’s programme of seminars and CPDs offer the latest insight on hot water sizing, CHP and solar thermal to help support the creation, or adaptation of existing buildings to be comfortable, efficient, functional, safe and sustainable through better design, supply, commissioning and service of lower carbon business-critical hot water, heating and power.
