The ICS Cool Energy hire team was approached by a leisure centre looking for a more sustainable alternative to replace one of the two gas-fired boilers used to heat the swimming pool facilities. During the replacement planning, the second of the aging boilers broke down requiring a new heating source within less than 24 hours to keep the swimming pool heated and the facility warm and comfortable.
Offering extensive experience in the leisure sector and emergency hire, and stocking more than 500MW of chiller rental fleet for next day delivery, the ICS Cool Energy delivered and installed a Heat Pump 650 within the required timeframe, completely taking over the heat load from the malfunctioning gas-boilers.
Within the 12-week rental period, the customer got familiarized with the heat pump technology and decided to permanently electrify its heating system to offset the use of fossil fuels for heating, lower the costs and reduce their carbon footprint.
The leisure centre decided to replace the entire gas-fired boiler system with the Heat Pump 650 capable to deliver over 600kW of cooling and heating capacity. Being a chiller and a heat pump within one single package, the unit offers reversible technology for lower installation and operating costs and to satisfy both cooling and heating demands.
