We are so proud of (and excited for) our sister company, Treco, who has recently been nominated by H&V News Awards 2016 for District Heating Project of the Year for the second year running! And to top it, for the same project too - Soho Farmhouse, the newly opened 125-acre estate and members club located in Great Tew in Oxfordshire. This projects features more than 7km of REHAU's RAUTHERMEX pre-insulated polymer pipework, in what REHAU believes is one of the largest polymer district networks in the UK.
Treco designed and installed four Guntamatic PRO 249kW biomass pellet boilers, supplemented by a 3MW LPG-fired boiler system which is acting as duty assist and back up. There are also two 10,000 litre bespoke thermal stores and a low loss header to help ensure optimum operational efficiency for the boilers. Treco's choice to work with REHAU’s RAUTHERMEX for the project is down to the proven low heat losses from the pipework, which features external thermal insulation with PU foam which has a lambda value of just 0.0216W/mK. Initial commissioning data indicated minimal temperature losses between the plant room and the user ends.
There has been resounding cheers throughout the office when we heard this great news and we extend our heartfelt congratulations to Treco and REHAU and hope they win the mighty title.
