Helping to produce hot water for this training facility of Colchester United is an Overtop solar-thermal system.

A high-capacity solar thermal system at Colchester United’s new training facilities helps to supply hot water for around 80 showers a day. There are eight roof-mounted Oventrop OKG-CS22 high-capacity flat-plate collectors with an anti-reflective glass to increase transmission by 5% over regular glass.

The system at the £3.5 million Florence Park project also includes two 500 l twin-coil cylinders and is automatically regulated by an Oventrop Regtronic wall-mounted control package with pre-installed switching schemes.

Blueflame Services was responsible for the design and installation of the M&E services.
