DHW for all six floors of this new building of Liverpool John Moores University is supplied by Lochinvar equipment, including solar thermal.

Lochinvar has supplied a solar-thermal system to meet the high demand for hot water in the new city-centre Redmond Building of Liverpool John Moores University. Consisting of a range of social and learning spaces, the 11 500 m2 building has toilet and changing facilities on each of its six floors, with a hot-water requirement throughout the day.

A solar hot-water system integrated with a gas-fired condensing water heater was specified. The Lochinvar equipment includes 12 solar collectors, an HSV thermal store and an EcoShield gas-fired condensing water heater.

The solar-thermal system was specified by building-services contractor SPIE Matthew Hall to meet a hot-water demand that was expected to be high and as an energy-efficient low-NOx solution.

The storage of DHW in the thermal store is minimal. Under normal operating conditions its basic design will not allow the build-up of legionella bacteria. HSV does not require a pasteurisation regime, which can be a highly energy-intensive process.
