As part of Aberystwyth Universities bid to reduce it’s carbon footprint, William Davies – IBERS was identified as a building which would benefit from a modernised heating plant.

Aber Heating Engineers were awarded the contract to provide extensive refurbishment to the main heating plant with the aim of creating a more efficient system which would cost less to run and reduce the carbon footprint of the building.

The survey of the three existing Ideal Concord CX boilers revealed that their average efficiency was down to 45%. Following careful decommissioning they were disposed of, along with the end-of-life pumps, associated pipework and flues.

To further enhance the efficiencies the existing control system was replaced with one developed, designed and built by our trusted controls supplier.

It was also identified that the water quality of the heating system was poor and causing inefficiencies within the LTHW system. Aber Heating Engineers advised and designed an Enwamatic filtration system to deal with this issue along with ensuring long term water quality for not only the system but protection of the new boilers and plant.

Works consisted of:

  • Removal of existing
  • Installation of 3no Rehema 610 boilers
  • Bespoke flue system
  • Enwamatic filtration system
  • Pipework, insulation, and cladding
  • Replacement Pumps
  • Gas pipework.
