First-class upgrade to flagship hospital

ELCO Heating Solutions (ELCO) has supplied four TRIGON XXL EVO gas condensing boilers to The Wirral’s flagship Arrowe Park Hospital, as part of an important system upgrade.

The new boilers, which replaced old and inefficient models, are supplying heating and hot water to several areas of the hospital, including CAL 1, CAL 2 and the maternity wards.

In order to fulfil the hospital’s heating and hot water requirements, two TRIGON XXL EVO900 and two EVO1100 were specified from ELCO’s floor standing commercial boiler range. The industry leading boilers deliver unrivalled power and performance thanks to a unique heat exchanger geometry and a water-cooled cold flame burner, which limit NOx emissions to 20mg/kWh, while offering gross seasonal efficiencies of up to 96%.

The M&E consultants for the project were Wirral-based JD Engineering Ltd. Commenting on the installation, Steve Roberts, Project Manager at JD Engineering Ltd, said: “The installation was relatively straightforward, as the existing flue system was already in place and the plant rooms were centrally located. We have previously fitted other ELCO units at the hospital, so we were confident the boilers would be able to deliver efficient heat distribution throughout the wards. We’ve been really pleased with the end result and are sure to use these models on other projects in the future.”

A major benefit of the TRIGON XXL boiler is its low water content design, which allows it to respond rapidly to the hospital’s heating and hot water demands. It is also incredibly lightweight and compact, ensuring it could be easily accommodated within the dimensions of the existing plant room.

Remarking on the refurbishment, Ray Hughes, Consulting Engineer at Arrowe Park Hospital, said “The renovation went smoothly and we were impressed with how little downtime there was before the new units were up and running. As a result, there was minimal disruption to the staff and patients. Since they have been replaced, reliability has significantly improved compared to the previous boilers, while delivering low emissions – which enhances our green credentials”.

Andreea Manoiu, solutions centre manager at ELCO Heating Solutions, said: “We are delighted that our most efficient TRIGON XXL EVO boilers are delivering high quality heating and impressively low NOx emissions at this flagship hospital. The range is ideal for large commercial applications, such as this one, and we’re proud that the boilers are providing staff and patients with highly efficient heating and hot water throughout the year.”

The TRIGON XXL is available in ‘ECO’ and ‘EVO’ variants, which combine to offer 19 different models overall. ‘ECO’ models offer excellent efficiencies and reduced energy consumption, and are available in outputs from 650kW to 1600kW. ‘EVO’ models offer the ‘best of both’, thanks to high power outputs and excellent efficiencies, with the range also including the industry’s first 2MW premix boiler, which features five heat exchanger sections to bolster power and performance, while keeping energy consumption and emissions to a strict minimum.
