John Lewis Kingston – new heating system drives up efficiency and lowers emissions
John Lewis Kingston, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, selected Remeha to provide an improved and more efficient heating solution for its department store, which covers 359,000 square feet.
The new heating solution involved the installation of two Remeha P520-24 sectional boilers, each powered by Baltur TBG 210MC fully modulating gas burners producing a total output capability of 3MW. The burners were supplied by EOGB.
By replacing the existing atmospheric boilers with boilers powered by fully-modulating EOGB/Baltur burners, the store now benefits from significant efficiency gains leading to energy savings and CO2 and NOx reductions. At the same time, the units have superior reliability and lower maintenance costs.
Martin Cooke, Technical Manager at EOGB, said: “The burner-boiler match in this heating system is extremely effective and enables the burners to operate at a 4:1 turndown ratio which significantly improves efficiency when compared to the old installation. The Baltur TBG range of fully modulating burners is well established and provides optimum combustion and performance which means that heating can be controlled in a more efficient manner.”
John Powell, Maintenance Manager responsible for the John Lewis Kingston department store, said: “With over 900 staff and hundreds of members of the public visiting the Kingston shop every day, a high-efficiency heating system is a key priority to maintain an excellent in-store environment. As well as improving performance, the new installation will also be beneficial in lowering our heating costs and reducing our carbon footprint.”
The EOGB/Baltur fully modulating gas burner range is available with outputs from 50kw to 10,850kw. The burners have low CO and NOx emissions and are easy to install which enables a trouble-free commissioning which is fully supported by EOGB engineers.
