MHS Boilers are fighting fit
Staff and visitors at the newly built Portway Lifestyle Centre in the West Midlands will benefit from a low carbon heating and hot water system from MHS Boilers, which is expected to contribute to a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating.
The purpose-built building has been installed with four R607 floor standing gas boilers and 32sqm of AURON DF evacuated tube solar collectors, supplying heating and hot water to the entire complex including a hydrotherapy pool, sports hall, gym and multi-purpose activity room.
To complete the Lifestyle Centre’s system, MHS Boilers (part of ELCO Heating Solutions) has also supplied two 400kW plate heat exchangers, two 1,875L thermal stores and two 965L INOX-MAXI buffer vessels. In addition, the centre will incorporate a new GP surgery, which will also benefit from the latest MHS Boilers equipment; including two 85kW THISION L wall hung boilers and two THISION 65/250 water heaters.
The R600 range comprises seven models with outputs from 150kW to 571kW and utilises a proven water-cooled, down-firing, premix burner system with an all stainless steel heat exchanger assembly. R600 boilers have a NOx emission of less than 35mg/kWh (which easily exceeds the requirements for the best BREEAM score) and can return efficiencies of up to 109%.
Portway Lifestyle Centre is an exciting new leisure facility for Sandwell bringing together sport, physical activity and health.
