The boiler plant for the Heron Tower in the City of London has been supplied by Remeha.

The tallest building in the City of London, the 46-storey Heron Tower, includes four Remeha P520 pressure-jet gas-fired high-efficiency boilers in its environmental design, contributing to an BREEAM ‘Excellent’ raging. This building is 230 m high, including a 28 m mast. It provides office space across 36 floors. A restaurant is planned on levels 38 to 40 and a separate one on the ground floor.

The boilers were specified by Foreman Roberts and installed by Skanska Rashleigh Weatherfoil. They each have a maximum output of 1100 kW and are capable of operating on biofuel in the future.

Features of the building include photo-voltaic cells covering the entire south facade.
