Hybrid packaged plant rooms.

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.

The MD’s patented design and combination of pre-mix burner and highly efficient load balanced heat exchanger gives the advantage of low water content heat engines and inbuilt redundancy without the need for expensive framework to convert wall hung boilers to floor standing.  Both compact and lightweight, MD enables installation in a variety of configurations to make the most of available, often minimal plant room floor space, yet still provides for a wide range of commercial heating applications.

As well as ticking the boxes for safety and sustainability, the low emission levels mean that a heating system built around MD high-efficiency condensing boiler satisfies the requirements of the Energy-related Products (ErP) directive.

Adveco’s m-CHP System for Bromsgrove Leisure Centre Shortlisted for Renewable Project of the Year Award

Commercial hot water and heating specialist, Adveco’s TOTEM micro combined heat and power (m-CHP) based system for Bromsgrove’s new Leisure Centre has been named as a Renewable Project of the Year finalist in the 2019 Heating & Ventilation News Awards.

As part of a wider local redevelopment project by Bromsgrove District Council, the new sports and leisure centre demanded a high-performance heating system. To achieve the level of energy efficiency required for this modern building, Yorkshire Building Services Ltd (YBS) designed, and Adveco provided, a system based on its Totem T25 m-CHP to reduce emissions and improve total efficiency.

“To have a customer’s project selected is especially gratifying, celebrating the professionalism of our contracting and installation partners and our customer’s decision to put their trust in us. It also one of the finest ways to showcases our commitment to sustainable technology that meets and exceeds the need for carbon reduction and the lowering of emissions,” said David O’Sullivan, managing director, Adveco.

Bromsgrove Leisure Centre benefits from Adveco's micro CHP solution.

The state of the art building features two large swimming pools, a sports hall, a 100-station gym, a fully featured spa and a café, so was a prime opportunity to display the sustainable potential of an m-CHP system. Electricity is produced and consumed on-site reducing the building’s reliance on the local grid. The waste heat produced is captured through a series of heat exchangers and used towards the high heat demand of the system.

With the significant continuous demand made by the Bromsgrove site, the m-CHP system drastically reduces the reliance on conventional boiler technology and improves the overall efficiency of the building. The site is on target for a net reduction in carbon emissions of more than 65,000 kg per year as well as providing an estimated £10,000 in annual savings to the District Council which runs the facility.

Designed as a boiler pre-fed system, allowing the m-CHP unit to maximise its input by prioritising the higher energy demand present in the building’s heating system, Adveco supplied a TOTEM T25 m-CHP appliance as well as a bespoke 3000-litre buffer vessel, including controls and ancillaries, to serve the building’s heating system. Adveco additionally supplied two A.O. Smith BFC120 condensing water heaters to serve the domestic hot water supply to the leisure centre.
