Sunderland Council reduces carbon emissions with new Hamworthy heat pump system

Stansfield business centre

When Sunderland Council needed a heating system that would help to reduce carbon emissions at its offices in Stansfield Business Centre, a new Tyneham heat pump system, set up in a hybrid installation from Hamworthy Heating provided the solution.

As the existing gas boilers at Stansfield Business Centre were operating at elevated temperatures and the heating system was designed to operate with high-grade heat at peak loads, Sunderland Council decided that a hybrid system (with an air source heat pump being the lead source of heating with a gas boiler providing a top up) was required, when its existing system reached end of life.

The new system at consists of a 32kW Tyneham air source monobloc heat pump which is connected to a 500L buffer cylinder. It features a co-efficiency of performance (COP) rating of up to 4.85, to provide efficient, low carbon heating and can be accessed on site or remotely.
