The show gathers building design and development professionals, energy users in commercial, industrial and public sectors, as well as energy suppliers and providers in one building.
Hevac, one of Ireland’s leading domestic, commercial and industrial heating specialists and Hamworthy’s distributor in the Republic of Ireland, attended the event, where Hamworthy’s space-saving Upton boiler with over 1MW of output from less than 1sqm footprint, was put forward for the Best Innovative Product SEAI Award.
The entries were judged “by a panel of highly-qualified and experienced professionals drawn from building engineering, architecture, facilities management and contracting.”
The judges recognised the Upton’s most distinctive features: a large output from a small footprint with the ability to fit into small plant rooms and a specially designed aluminium heat exchanger with rapid heat transfer making it a highly efficient boiler.
Darren Yourell, commercial and industrial manager for Hevac, said: “We have a great relationship with Hamworthy. As our customers often find themselves working with smaller plant rooms, compact equipment is a big benefit. That, paired with the high thermal output the Upton can achieve and the development and testing of the heat exchanger were the features that encouraged us to enter the boiler for the awards. We’re pleased the product was recognised as ‘Commended’ from a panel made up of industry experts. It essentially adds an impartial stamp of approval and underlines the quality of the product.”
