SOLAR HEATING AND CONDENSING BOILERS FROM ELCO KEEP GUESTS WARM AT HOLIDAY INN, BIRMINGHAM AIRPORT
The newly extended Holiday Inn at Birmingham Airport is enjoying green and sustainable heating and hot water thanks to the installation of 28 SOLARTRON® S2.5 flat panel solar collectors as well as four R607 floor standing condensing boilers from ELCO.
The installation also includes four 900 litre twin coil and three 3,000 litre single coil hot water cylinders from ELCO.
The Holiday Inn, Birmingham Airport has recently undergone significant redevelopment adding an additional 103 bedrooms, as well as a conference area, meeting rooms, residents’ leisure facility, bar and restaurant and seating areas. To add to the complication of the redevelopment, all the work had to be carried out while maintaining services to the hotel at all times.
The M&E consultant for the redevelopment was Faarup Associates, and Hydro Mechanical Services Ltd was the mechanical installation contractor. Brett Stokes and Peter Gammon from ELCO worked closely with Sutton Coldfield-based Hydro Mechanical Services Ltd to ensure the system was fully integrated, as well as successful installation and commissioning. ELCO also supplied the A-frames which house the SOLATRON® S 2.5 collectors.
