RAC

Norwich, UK.
Type of project: Refurbishment
Installer Company: Fridge Spares Wholesalers (FSW)
Year installation: 2012

Background:
 After responding to customer feedback, the Mercure Norwich Hotel’s owners embarked on a project to install in-room air conditioning to enhance the comfort of their stay.

Project Challenge:
 The hotel required stylish indoor units, capable of providing cost-effective, reliable air conditioning in the 68 bedrooms of the hotel.

Solution: 
45 Panasonic Etherea ECONAVI air conditioning units were fitted because the innovatively eco-friendly units proved to be an all-round cost-effective and energy-saving solution. Panasonic’s Etherea range incorporates the innovative Econavi technology. Econavi features an intelligent human activity sensor to optimise air conditioner operation according to room conditions – it detects and reacts to human presence and activities.

Building Energy analysis: 
The hotel rooms are now constantly monitored with the ECONAVI sensors and patrol systems; detecting human presence and levels of activity, adjusting the cooling, heating and air flow levels accordingly.

3rd Party Comments:
 “Fundamentally the ECONAVI system within Panasonic’s air conditioning wall mounts really sold it to us as suppliers and advisors. We knew from the off-set that contractors and consumers alike can see the obvious benefits from the Etherea’s energy saving initiative”, says Peter Emanuel, Air Conditioning Product Manager of FSW.

Hotel Claris 5 * GL

Spain

Systém vrf, Hotels

ECOi 3w

Background
Housed in a building built in the year 1883, neoclassical style, was one of the first palaces that were built in one corner of the District of l'Eixample in Barcelona. The 5* Grand Luxe hotel, which opened its doors in 1992, integrates the façade of the old palace with a modern glass structure. In 2012 the building replaced its existing air-conditioning system with Panasonic’s ECOi system. The 120-room hotel also has a gallery of Egyptian art from the collection of Jordi Clos.

Challenge of the project
The challenge presented by this project was to replace an existing VRF system without affecting the normal activity of hotel. The main objectives were to reduce running costs, provide a more comfortable atmosphere with more precise temperature control, and quieter operation for guests. In addition, the property required excellent after-sales service, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The solution
The heat recovery system is ideal for a hotel of this category. A smart combination of 2 pipe and heat recovery units significantly reduced the investment costs, without affecting the requirements of comfort. Thanks to the modularity of the system ECOi, the installation was performed plant-by-plant without affecting the normal activity of hotel.

Control
The integrated system control was provided by the KNX/EIB interface and in addition, a central touch panel with web server (CZ-256ESMC2) was installed for centralized system control

Café 40

Spain

Systém vrf, Restaurants

ECOg


Background
40 Café is the first café restaurant belonging to Los 40 Principales, in Spain's popular music radio station. The installation is within the basement of an old building in one of the busiest streets of Madrid. 40 Cafe, aims to become a new icon of nightlife in Madrid.

Challenge of the project
There were several challenges to implementing this project. The first was the power limitation in the building. Despite being in the Centre of Madrid, there was a restriction on power to run conventional HVAC installation. Another major challenge was the opening date. The tight deadline was a requirement to meet the demand of the owners. Outdoor units were installed at roof level with the help of a crane. Due to the limitations of restricting Street access and the imposition to residents of the building, the external installation was carried out in just one day available prior to opening.

The solution
ECOg, the gas powered VRF, was the ideal solution to overcome the power limitation of the area. The system combines seamlessly with Panasonic’s VRF indoor units and allows additional connection to a hydronic system. Panasonic pledged delivery of the units for the only day in which the crane could be used, in spite of the fact that the systems still had to be produced. The installation date was
just 2 months after being awarded the project. This was all made possible thanks to the involvement of various departments as well as Senior Management, highlighting Panasonic’s commitment to meet customer needs.

Control
A touch panel with PAIMS management (CZ-256ESMC2), was installed for centralized air conditioning system control, including PC software and web server interface.

Bergås Terasse

Norway

Systém vrf, Residential

ECOi


System: 2-way ECOi system, 6 O/U 
Inst. capacity: 3x76 kW (heating) 3x16 kW (hot water)
Owner: 
Block Watne AS, new installation in Drammen (Norway) 
Year Installation: 2013 

Background:
  Bergås Terasse is a new condominium complex, under construction in the outskirts of Drammen, some 50 km west of Oslo. It consists of three block buildings with 14 apartments each and a common garage underneath. The first families will move in into the apartments in the summer of 2013.

Project Challenge: 
Norwegian regulations prohibits the use of oil or gas heating, or electrical radiators for heating new houses. It also stipulates that a minimum of 60 per cent of the energy consumption has to come from alternative/renewable sources. District heating was not an alternative, as it isn’t available at the location. And a geothermal energy system was too expensive.

Solution: An air-to-air heat pumps provide the heating, and is combined with a heat recovery system. Each of the apartments has its own duct unit. There is also an additional four wallhanged units per house for the common areas (entrances and staircases). The hot water is produced with air-to-water heat pumps. The outdoor units are placed in separate building, to reduce noise, save valuable indoor space and facilitate service.

Building Energy analysis:  The houses are built according to the very strict Norwegian building code TEK10, and have very low energy consumption for room heating and production of hot water.

Control: Panasonic Intelligent control with energy distribution for central controller, with web setting for monitoring from distance. Each apartment has a Panasonic Simplified controller installed.

3rd Party Comments: Mr. Niklas Kiiveri   (EcoConsult A/S, Project manager company):   There have been many difficulties under way in this project, but so far they have all been solved during the process. There is no other project in the Nordics to compare with, so with help from Panasonic we went out in Europe to find one that was as alike as possible. We also had to build up a “new” in house faculty understanding parallel to the plumbing, electrical, ventilation and carpenter competences already well-established in the construction team. The buildings might also need place for a cooling system. But our first opinion is that the VRF system absolutely is here as a viable solution for the future building culture in the Nordics.

Carluccios Restaurant

UK

Aquarea – tepelná čerpadla, Restaurants

AQUAREA

Specifying company: Oceanair
Installer Company: FWP Air Conditioning
Year installation: 2012

Background: 
Carluccio’s restaurant wanted to install a system which would provide the desired volume of hot water, at the correct temperature while at the same time reduced energy costs.

Project Challenge:
 Following a consultation with Carluccio’s, it was decided that their new site in the Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield would be the ideal location as it had the correct attributes for the installation of an air to water heat pump system.  Previous restaurants in the chain had been fitted with a more traditional 12kW boiler system.

Solution:
 FWP installed a 12kW Aquarea T-CAP mono bloc unit which would allow  for the free air from the kitchen roof space to be transferred through condensing unit providing hot water at the optimum temperature.  With a high coefficient of performance (COP), for every kW of electricity the system uses, it provides 4kW of energy. This makes the Aquarea far more cost effective than a conventional heating system.

Building Energy analysis: When Carluccio’s compared the Sheffield site to one of their existing restaurants of a similar size, the energy savings were considerable.  To heat the water for their Leeds restaurant cost £3782 whilst at the Meadowhall site the comparable cost was just £951. These sizable savings mean the site will see a return on investment in about 2 years and has achieved a COP of about 3.91.

3rd Party Comments:
 Alison Stanton, Development Director from Carluccio’s said: “We strive for sustainability wherever possible right across our business and were keen to trial air to water heat pumps at our new Sheffield restaurant. The results of the trial show us that we can achieve significant savings on our energy costs as well as reducing our carbon footprint.  We hope to now install Aquarea units at all of our new developments and potentially retro fit ASHPs to our existing 50 restaurants.

ECOi

Background: Controlled temperature and monitoring is a necessity for any facility dealing with pharmaceutical storage and manufacturing processes. DDD Pharmaceuticals’ new site in Watford not only required controlled cooling for the warehouse, but also heating and cooling facilities for the offices at the plant.

Project Challenge:
 DDD Pharmaceuticals provides a complete service for manufacturing pharmaceutical products for clients in the health and beauty sectors. As with most pharmaceutical products, to maintain the safety, performance and efficiency of a product, the environment in which the item is manufactured, stored and distributed must be carefully maintained.  With around 15-tonnes of product on-site, a reliable solution was required.

Solution: 
For the manufacturing and storage phase at DDD, Panasonic’s new ECOi VRF range was specified as the ideal solution for the plant. Seven 16kW cooling only cassettes were installed in the pharmaceutical facility, with a further five to heat and cool in the offices, all piped from the same outdoor units.

Building Energy analysis: 
To meet the requests of DDD, TF Solutions opted to use Panasonic’s ECOi outdoor units with the indoor cassettes. The units are able to achieve an incredible COP performance of up to 4.04 when cooling and 4.56 whilst heating – giving excellent savings. The installation also makes the site compliant of the R22 regulations.

3rd Party Comments:
 “The requirement at DDD, although not unique, was somewhat complex” explains John Wakefield, designer of the HVAC installation at DDD. “Whilst constant and recordable conditions were required in the pharmaceutical storage and manufacturing facilities, we also needed a system that could provide adjustable heating and cooling to other onsite amenities. The Panasonic solution allowed for us to combine both these needs into one system, allowing for simultaneous operations whilst only requiring one set of outdoor units.”

ECOG

Hinkley, UK
Type of project: Refurbishment

Installer Company: Pick Everard.
Year installation: 2012

Background: 
The ailing chiller system serving the National Grid’s Hinckley critical call centre needed to be replaced.  National Grid needed a reliable and cost-effective solution.

Project Challenge:
 The Hinckley plant houses the highly important gas leak call centre that runs 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. It was crucial for the system to not only be dependable, but also be highly energy efficient.

Solution: 
The Pansonic ECO-G system installed allowed for more efficient control and performance. The National Grid site’s existing system of two chillers was replaced by seven Panasonic ECO-G’s. This technique of using multiple systems provides a much higher resilience compared to only one or two units. If a fault in one arises, the combination of heat pumps ensures that it is able to provide continuity of service.  

Building Energy analysis: 
The new ECO-G system installed on site has been a very straight forward transition. Not only do the units provide continuous service to the site, they have also allows the costs involved in running the units to be significantly reduced.    

3rd Party Comments:
 “The ECO-G system installed allowed for more efficient control and performance,” explains Jeff Fleming from Pick Everard, installers of the project. “With the highest reliability rate, the ECO-G ensures individual and efficient control and performance. This is a far more convenient method, and reduces the overall consumption of the unit, removing unnecessary wastage that would result from more traditional air conditioning systems.”
