How do Aquatic Centres stay relevant and continue to deliver value for their local community in a world of increasing challenges?
Supreme Heating recognise the importance of understanding socio-demographic drivers in the community and responding through the provision of social and recreation assets. Modern Aquatic Centres require a culture that not only supports continuing transformation, but one that is sustainable, adaptable and durable.
Environmental sustainability and responsiveness are essential to meet the highest performance standards for living and working. Sustainability is no longer an optional extra, but a fundamental aspect of functional design. Great design creates ongoing value for people and communities while minimising costs over time.
Value is also realised in the form of reducing operating expenses. Within the current environment of spiralling utility costs, we look towards innovation for the next generation solutions.
Supreme Heating’s Heatseeker DualSun Hybrid Thermal/PV panel is one such technology. With its ability to provide sustainable & renewable solar energy, in the form of electricity and thermally heated water in one panel, this innovative technology helps to DRIVE DOWN THE OPERATIONAL EXPENDUATURE of Aquatic Centre’s, allowing budget to be placed back into community programs, extending the centre’s value.
DualSun panels are particularly well-adapted for pool heating, because the panels have better thermal performance at low heating temperatures.
DualSun panels optimise roof space by producing heated water and electricity to heat and maintain the temperature of the pools using a plate heat exchanger, with a backup boiler during winter months (if required) and preheat the hot water system using a second plate heat exchanger and a solar hot water tank. The electricity generated can be used directly in the building during the day, and any surplus electricity can be returned to the grid.
Heatseeker DualSun aims to make our buildings more energy independent by generating solar heated water and electricity. Savings are realised in hot water production, by pre-heating the water supply with thermally heated water from the DualSun panel. The pre-heated water is then fed into the boiler for final increase in temperature, reducing the amount of energy required, saving the operator money.
DualSun panels optimise roof space by producing electricity and pre-heated thermal water to assist with hot water services in buildings. The pre-heated water generated by the DualSun panel is stored within a solar water tank (effectively acting like a battery to store heat), where it’s then fed into the building services system hot water production plant.
The electricity generated can be used directly in the building during the day, stored in batteries or feed into the national electric grid. Either way, its going to reduce the power bills!
