A SPAR petrol forecourt in Leicester which we have recently fitted-out has installed a Heat Recovery system connected to a Daikin CVP system. The system provides all the hot water needs for the busy SUBWAY and COSTA outlets in addition to the rest and staff facilities. The system is the smallest one we supply and has a 50-litre storage capacity with a 3kW internal heat exchanger which can recharge the tank every 50 minutes. The heat exchanger is double twin wall design which ensures that even in a failure situation that the refrigerant and water can never come into contact with one another. This is a legal requirement under EN1717 for any business handling food. The system is simplicity itself, maintenance free, having no moving parts it is highly efficient due to the innovative design of the heat exchangers that can remove up to 100% of the energy produced by the refrigeration plant. The system was fitted with an optional heat meter that monitors the real time hot water usage giving SPAR accurate details of the cost savings the system is delivering.
The annual energy saving for providing the 384,000 litre of free hot water is over 18,600 kWh.
The annual cost saving is over £2000 per annum giving a payback of under two years.
SPAR can now also boast a reduction in its carbon footprint of 10 tonnes of carbon a year.
The Jordon Group can supply and install Heat Recovery Systems for any working environment which will provide free hot water and huge energy reductions. For more information or a free site survey and quotation, contact us today!
