Commercial Plant Nursery

Client: Commercial Plant Nursery
Location: QLD
Heat Pumps Installed: 2 x Evo Comfort 19 Hot Water Heating, Space Heating & Cooling Heat Pumps
Application: Heating for Maximum Plant Production

EvoHeat assisted a trade partner to provide a more energy efficient solution for a nursery project.

During the winter period, plant root temperatures drop which reduces production yields in nurseries. To combat the cooling of soil and roots, the nursery installed an in-floor heating style hot water loop under the plant beds and circulated warm water through the loop. This water was heated using old, energy inefficient electric element technology. Operational costs were high, given approx the 1kW energy input to 1kW energy output ratio

By changing to two Evo Comfort 19 heat pumps, 1kw of energy will be output to 4kw, reducing the nursery’s operational costs by approximately a massive 75%! The Evo Comfort is the ideal integrated solution for hot water heating, as well as space heating and cooling!

Stephen worked to get all heat pumps installed and operational immediately with no delays. EvoHeat were very impressed with Stephen’s detail in all systems which are now being implemented and coordinated to provide ongoing savings for the council and the community.

Any council that is this proactive in moving away from expensive and inefficient methods of heating such as gas; or are updating their technology to be able to monitor all aspects of it are award winning in their progressive thinking.

Congratulations to Stephen Owen of Georges River Council and all involved: Stowe Australia, Matthew Cochrane and the team at Enviro Building Services as well as Mark Greentree from Image Air Conditioning on what is now a first-class solution for the community!

Griffith University Aquatic and Fitness Centre

Client: Griffith University Aquatic and Fitness Centre
Location: Holland Park West, QLD
Heat Pumps Installed:
Indoor Learn to Swim Pool: CS57 Heat Pump
25m Outdoor Pool: 2x CS145-GEN2 Heat Pumps
Kids Splash Area: CS95-GEN2 Heat Pump

Application
Four EvoHeat heat pumps were installed to maintain consistent water temperatures in three pools at the Griffith University Aquatic and Fitness Centre.

The Griffith University Aquatic and Fitness Centre replaced their inefficient heat pumps with four EvoHeat heat pumps in 316 stainless steel. Their old units were regularly breaking down which caused unstable pool water temperatures and high operating costs for the following bodies of water:
The indoor pool was fitted with a EvoHeat CS57 unit to maintain a toasty 32.5 degrees Celsius for the toddlers and babies attending the learn-to swim school. The outdoor 25m pool has two CS145-GEN2 units to maintain a 28 degree Celsius water temperature for the swim squad and regular patrons and the kids splash area has a CS95-GEN2 unit installed to maintain a comfortable 27 degrees Celsius for young children to be able to play happily.

Outstanding Results
Large savings will be achieved by upgrading to EvoHeat’s high energy efficient heat pumps. Based on electrical energy rates of 24c kWh, if you compare the estimated operating costs of the replaced heaters, when brand new, to EvoHeat’s modernised technology for all three bodies of water combined, Griffith University Aquatic and Fitness Centre stand to save almost 10k annually. That’s over $145,000 over 15-years.

In addition to improved energy efficiencies gained by upgrading to EvoHeat’s modernised technology, plumbing modifications to improve energy efficiencies were made to the filtration systems for both the kids splash area and indoor learn to swim pool. The heat pumps were connected in-line with the filtration system which resulted in the removal of the side stream water pumps previously dedicated for the heat pumps. The result was minimal impact on system head pressure and a reduction of operating costs of approximately $3,150 annually or almost $50,000 savings over the next 15-years.

James Cook University

Client: James Cook University
Location: Townsville, QLD
Heat Pumps Installed: 4 x EvoHeat DHP 603-R & 2 x EvoHeat DHP20-R Heat Pumps
Application: Coral Tank Heating

James Cook University are using EvoHeat heat pumps to heat their coral tanks. The Marine and Aquaculture Research Centre in Townsville is the central testing facility for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies (Coral CoE).

James Cook University provide physical labs for the Coral CoE to facilitate research into the effects of water quality, temperature, light and climate change indicators on the organisms of the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef.

To efficiently maintain the desired temperature for the coral tanks research, four DHP603-R and two DHP20-R heat pump units were installed. Due to the fragility of the coral housed in the tanks, it was crucial that a special controller was installed to have a 0.1°C accuracy to precisely maintain the desired water temperature to best suit the Coral CoE studies.
