Oventrop renewables win game, set and match for new tennis and leisure centre in Sheffield

Published:  07 March, 2018

Oventrop, Graves Tennis and Leisure Centre

Graves Tennis and Leisure Centre is a modern facility in Sheffield, offering a range of activities including tennis. The centre uses a huge amount of hot water and clients requested a mixture of renewable energy systems to help meet the demand and cut carbon emissions.

Oventrop was selected by mechanical contractors NG Bailey to deliver the full design supply and installation of a ‘Solcos’ solar thermal hot water system. They selected 20m2 of Oventrop MQ high efficiency, commercial flat plate collector and mounted this on prefabricated mounting frames. The collectors were connected to the 1000 litre storage cylinder using a single length of pre-insulation stainless steel pipe and control was provided by a Regusol ELH 130 pumpset that benefits from a built in pre-wired Regtronic controller with collector over heat protection function and is fully compliant with the very latest ErP regulations.
