McDonald Engineers has supplied 30 of its POWERflow solar cylinders to an award winning housing project in Scotland at the insistence of an architect who recognised the importance of using copper cylinders with solar energy.
The project, which went on to win the prestigious Green Apple Environmental Award, saw McDonald Engineers supply a combination of 180 litre and 210 litre POWERflow cylinders fitted with high performance finned copper coils to deliver maximum performance.
McDonald Engineers is delighted to see the government announce the Renewable Heat Incentive will be launched in spring 2014.
As one of the leading players in the design, manufacture and supply of hot water cylinders incorporating renewable energy sources, McDonald Engineers has been calling on the scheme to be implemented for a number of years.
The announcement means the RHI scheme widens the current government incentives to include energy sources such as:
· solar thermal
The lure of ‘free’ hot water, the potential to cut energy bills and the potential to earn money via the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), is making solar thermal installations an increasingly attractive proposition.
And whilst our solar thermal cylinders have been successfully installed for decades, clients continue to have challenges when it comes to specifying cylinders to maximise the savings delivered by the project.
McDonald Engineers has supplied 12 of its Contract POWERflow unvented cylinders complete with heat pump and solar coils for the refurbishment of social housing in the west of Scotland.
The company’s Contract POWERflow can provide a cost effective alternative for larger projects requiring lower specification unvented cylinders.
And whilst the Contract POWERflow may be a more simplified unit than the original POWERflow, McDonald Engineers continue to offer a full customisation service to allow clients to include additional coils for use with multiple fuel sources.
McDonald Engineers has shown its credentials in the renewable energy sector with the announcement it has secured the order to manufacture and supply the hot water cylinder for a Scottish Renewable and Innovation Centre. The high tech facility located at one of the UK’s leading renewable energy parks, has been purpose designed to create high quality work space in a low carbon facility and will feature one of McDonald Engineers POWERflow Commercial Heat Pump Cylinders.
McDonald Engineers has made solar hot water systems easy with its SOLARsave pre-plumbed unit which features a high performance dual coil copper cylinder with all the major components pre-fitted and pre-wired for a quick and easy installation.
McDonald Engineers has been at the forefront of hot water systems for decades and, as well as an extensive range of products available for immediate despatch, have established a reputation in the market place, for being the specialists in bespoke hot water cylinders for multi-fuel and alternative fuel applications.
Many architects, installers and end clients are turning to unvented cylinders as a means of future proofing their project, due to the systems' ability to work with renewable energy sources such as solar and heat pump installations.
