Context

The Radisson Blu at London's Stansted Airport is a 500-room hotel with conference rooms, banqueting, health club and other facilities. 

Challenge

The domestic hot water provision at the hotel needed to be overhauled, including the replacement of the old plate heat exchangers. Manchester-based [PS]K Design was appointed to oversee the upgrade project, which led to the specification of four new plate heat exchangers from Stokvis.

Solution

Four Econoplate plate heat exchangers were supplied, together with unvented kits and custom-made insulation jackets. The original PHEs were replaced one at a time, and Stokvis' own engineers carried out the commissioning of the units. The scope of work included the installation of water softening equipment and a secondary return for the hot water service.

Products supplied

4 x C3A 1350+0R Econoplate plate heat exchangers.

Testimonial

Steve Bartlett, senior engineer on the project for [PS]K Design, said:

"The Radisson Blu, located close to the terminal at Stansted, not only has 500 guest bedrooms, it also offers conference and banqueting rooms, and a health club and various other facilities – together with a health club – so hot water demand is very high and subject to big peaks at different times.

"The original plate heat exchangers were struggling to cope so we decided to replace them with the four Stokvis Econoplates, knowing that they provide excellent performance and reliability, while the manufacturer also offers very good service. The new plate heat exchangers were selected to work at lower primary temperatures to maximise saving from setting back the boiler temperatures saving over 30% in energy costs. I have always enjoyed a very good relationship with Stokvis and this project has gone very well."
