Sime’s Revolution for renewables

Sime, Murelle Revolution 30, heat pump

Sime has launched its Murelle Revolution 30, the first completely integrated boiler and heat pump in a single cased product. Using an ErP A++ 30 kW Murelle boiler and sealed 4kW output heat pump, Sime is targeting its Murelle Revolution 30 at new build, social housing and the retrofit renewables markets. The Murelle Revolution 30 can be installed by any registered Gas Safe installer in a single installation process, without an F-gas-registered installer present

The Murelle Revolution 30 can be installed inside and hung on the wall like a conventional boiler. With two inlets, and a flue outlet, the Revolution provides heat and hot water, achieving an average seasonal heating performance of 134%, giving A++ energy efficiency, according to the ErP Ecodesign Regulation.

The boiler and heat pump work in tandem, with the heat pump operating first. When the external temperature is higher than its minimum set value (default -7°C) the heat pump and the boiler will be activated in quick succession. When the set point is reached, the boiler will start to adjust power until the heat requirement is attained and then both of the generators will be extinguished. If the external temperature is higher than 7°C (value can be re-set), only the heat pump will be activated. The boiler will be activated only when the desired temperature is not achieved by the heat pump on its own.

Sime General Manager Massimo Bizzotto says: “We have already seen the Murelle Revolution 30 successfully piloted in Italy and in Spain and we are in discussions with leading UK construction and heating clients about how the Murelle Revolution 30 will fit with their own renewable projects. We anticipate interest from installers and contractors who work with customers who are off grid, with new build and from the selfbuild sector.”
