SWEP has won the contract to supply brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) to the 100 Bishopsgate project in the City of London. Consultants Hilson Moran have designed the project for Brookfield Development.

64 BPHEs will be supplied to the 40-storey 88 000 m2 building, which will provide office and retail accommodation. The BPHEs will help deliver comfortable heating and cooling conditions for occupants and visitors.

The contract will see SWEP supply its B649 model, a gasket-free heat exchanger that can handle up to 10 MW.

Third-party testing to verify the heat-transfer performance was carried out by the German company DMT GmbH & Co. KG, which showed the BG649 performing well beyond minimum performance requirements.

Last year SWEP achieved AHRI (Airconditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute of North America) for its product range, a requirement by the retained consultation for this project.
