Nottinghamshire-based e2ecoheat has carried out what it claims is the UK’s first restaurant application for Daikin’s Altherma High Temperature System in conjunction with a VRV III Heat Recovery Compact Combination.
The system has been installed by Dane’s Yard Kitchen, a 190-cover Graysons restaurant based in Stratford, London.
Up until now, e2ecoheat has only installed Altherma systems in residential properties, so the move into a commercial setting is a key milestone for the business.
Managing director, Steve Dale, said that the system is integrated with the Daikin Altherma High Temperature Hot Water Module and will provide the majority of hot water from recovered heat from the cooling system.
“We have combined the system with Daikin’s VRV Hot Water Module to provide energy efficient domestic hot water for the kitchen and WC facilities,” he explains. “A temperature range of 25℃ to 80℃ can be generated from recovered or recycled surplus heat. The module also offers potential savings of up to 17% compared with a gas boiler.”
The installation should mean that the restaurant wastes less energy and the overall system efficiency is vastly improved to reduce both running costs and carbon emissions.
Additionally, the restaurant features pre-insulated ductwork fabricated from the Kingspan KoolDuct System supplied by e2ecoheat’s sister company.
Danes Yard Kitchen is Graysons’ latest venture and is located next to the Olympic Park on Stratford High Street.
