Oventrop control water flow in new buildings for Royal Navy

The Warspite building at the Royal Navy’s HMS Collingwood site at Fareham is one of two new buildings to be equipped throughout with Oventrop valves.
All valves for heating, cooling and domestic services for two new buildings at the Royal Navy’s HMS Collingwood establishment in Fareham have been supplied by Oventrop. Warspite and the Personnel Administration Centre at the Navy’s School of Communications & Weapons Engineering are part of an ongoing programme of expansion. On the HMS Collingwood site, there is an MTHW main, which was tapped into to provide plant-room hot-water supplies for both new buildings. Heat exchangers are used in each of the plant rooms to reduce the water to LTHW. The PAC building has a storage calorifier and another heat exchanger to feed to the radiator heating system. All 85 radiators have Oventrop AV6 adjustable-flow thermostatic radiator valves and lockshield sets. Radiator circuits are dynamically balanced using Hydromat differential-pressure-control valves. The substantial domestic water system has boosted hot and cold water to serve a large number of toilets and showers; Oventrop valves are used throughout. All isolating, commissioning and balancing valves were supplied by Oventrop. The Warspite building requires both heating and cooling, which are delivered from the MTHW/LTHW supply and a chiller in the plant room serving 40 fan-coil units. Each FCU has Hydromat Q and Hycocon Q flow-regulating valves and 2-port control valves.Oventrop hydronic balancing valves are used throughout this building. The M&E contractor was EMCOR Drake & Scull.
