Working for Willmott Dixon Housing Limited, Riomay designed, installed and commissioned a solar thermal pre-heat system at Bell Green to a 5,000-litre cylinder via plate heat exchanger.
The system provides residents of the 85 apartments with an environmentally efficient supply of hot water for around 40 weeks of the year.
Riomays panels were chosen for their flexibility of installation to lie flat with minimal visual impact, whilst delivering 888 kWh(th) per m2 per annum.
Panel Model: 85 X Riomay DF120 solar collectors
Pre-heating 5,000 litres DHW via plate heat exchanger
2 X 60kW Fan Coil Units
Power Output: 782kwh/sqm Resulting in a total of 119MW/hrs per annum.
