Skanska has selected Hoval boilers fitted with Riello dual fuel low NOx burners for the New Papworth Hospital in Cambridgeshire.
Hoval says the ‘precise matching of boilers and burners will ensure optimum energy efficiency with low NOx emissions’.
The new-310 bed hospital is being constructed on the Cambridge Biomedical campus, using BIM, and is due for completion in 2018. Hoval says the ability to supply BIM-compatible product information for incorporation into the model was key to the specification of its and Riello’s products.
Two Hoval Max-3 2.2 MW boilers fitted with Riello RLS300/EV burners will be used as the lead boilers to provide space heating and hot water to the new 40,000 m2 hospital, backed up by a 530 kW Max-3 boiler with RS68/EV burner. Hoval will also supply two 1,100 kg/hr TDHU steam boilers, both using Riello RLS120/EV burners.
The Riello RLS300/EV and RLS120/EV burners are low NOx dual fuel, while the RS68/EV is gas only. All the burners incorporate inverter-driven fan motors and full electronic control, with an interface that provides real-time information for the end-user. Hoval Max-3 boilers have a three-pass design to deliver net efficiencies to 95.2%.
