As part of a major upgrade, Elco Heating Solutions has supplied 15 TRIGON® XL 570kW boilers to 10 Upper Bank Street in Canary Wharf.
The new compact and highly efficient gas condensing boilers have replaced 21 ageing units.
Comprising 30 occupied floors, four basement floors, special function suites, as well as a gym, swimming pool and auditorium – all spanning over one millionft2 – 10 Upper Bank Street required a modern, reliable and high performance heating system to cope with the fluctuating demands of the building.
To fulfil the system requirements, Elco's floor standing units were installed over three floors; four boilers on the 31st level, and an additional 11 divided between the fifth and sixth. Elco also ensured hassle free integration to the building management system, by utilising the Elco Commercial Gateway to allow communication via BACnet protocol.
MEP designers for the project were THD Consulting Engineers, while the installation was undertaken by Heventa Building Services Engineering.
Commenting on the decision to specify the TRIGON® XL units, Chris Glover, director at THD Consulting Engineers, said: “This was an ambitious project that required a carefully designed, high quality heating system. The Elco boilers were chosen for a number of reasons, but one of the most important was their high levels of sustainability. I was really impressed with their overall performance, as well as the extremely low NOx levels on offer, so I will certainly be considering them for other projects.”
All TRIGON® XL boilers can be disassembled for easy on site handling and simple installation in buildings with restricted access. This was a key feature in the specification of TRIGON®XL boilers at 10 Upper Bank Street, as the units needed to be stripped into their component parts, then rebuilt by the Elco service team in each of the plant rooms. Indeed, Elco supplied a full service throughout the project, with area sales manager, Alan Hough, playing a crucial role from project conception and system design, to installation and commissioning.
Remarking on the installation of the Elco boilers, Bob Masiero, senior projects manager at Heventa Building Services Engineering, added: “The entire installation process was straightforward, especially when it came to fitting the boilers in the required cascade arrangement within each plant room. The units are fantastic from an accessibility point of view, which will be particularly beneficial when it comes to annual servicing and maintenance. I was impressed with the smooth process of assembling them in situ and would highly recommend using them on future projects.”
The TRIGON® XL is available in seven different models, with outputs ranging from 150-570kW, each offering a wealth of benefits, including: Ultra-low NOx emissions complying with class 6 (2018) requirements, an 8 bar working pressure, 30K flow/return temperature differential, superb seasonal efficiencies, and an ultra-compact footprint.
The boiler’s impressive low NOx emissions are achieved by utilising a commercially proven premix-burner system, which includes a fully modulating, water cooled cold flame burner. This is combined with an optimised combustion system and stainless steel heat exchanger to provide a reliable and robust lifetime performance – while also offering gross seasonal efficiencies up to 97.5%.
Elco’s TRIGON® XL570 models are also designed to pass through standard 760mm wide doors, while factory fitted cargo wheels allow each boiler to be easily manoeuvred into its final position.
