These air-source heat pumps from Elco UK meet the DHW requirements of new student accommodation.

Hot water for new student accommodation in Colchester is provided by three 35 kW Aerotop T air-source heat pumps from Elco UK. The King Edward Quay development has 381 room pods and 57 kitchen pods and is the first phase of a development by the Pickstock Group.

The heat pumps have been installed alongside a 3000 l Maxis glass-lined cylinder, a Pisces pressurisation unit and a plate heat exchanger — also supplied by Elco.

These heat pumps were installed by M&E contractor Manstal. Contract manager Paul Dutton said, ‘During the installation, we received excellent technical backup from Elco, which was very helpful. All the equipment was successfully installed without a problem.’

Aerotop T heat pumps can be installed inside and outside buildings. There are nine models without outputs up to 35 kW and COPs up to 3.7.
