Wilo provided the Central Bank headquarters in Dublin with heating, cooling and cold water supply pumps. Located within the 520-hectare Dublin Docklands area, Central Bank is a state-of-the-art 'green' building certified by BREEAM. One of the specification criteria for the project was the provision of high-efficiency class IE4 pumps which would ensure compliance with the BREEAM requirements.
- Wilo-Stratos GIGA series
- Wilo-IL-E series (for heating and chilled water systems)
- Wilo-SiBoost Smart 3 Helix EXCEL series (cold water applications including rainwater harvesting)
The project included the supply of the Wilo-Stratos GIGA series, which is an electronically-controlled glanded single pump featuring inline-design using EC motor technology for increased operation efficiency.
Wilo-IL-E series pumps were provided for pumping the heating and chilled water systems, and the Wilo-SiBoost Smart 3 Helix EXCEL series are in operation for cold water applications including rainwater harvesting. The compact high-efficiency pressure-boosting system consists of vertically-mounted stainless steel high-pressure multistage centrifugal glanded pumps for which each pump has an integrated frequency converter for maximum efficiency of operation.
These packaged booster systems include ready-for-connection stainless steel pipework base frame-mounted and an automatic control system with all necessary measurement and adjustment facility. For a reliable operation in the HVAC applications several Wilo-Stratos models are used.
Wilo Ireland has also been awarded with the service contract for the new campus: "As a global specialist for pumps and pump systems, we offer a wide variety of services to help our clients optimising and securing their processes", explains Derek Elton. "Caring about our customer is an ongoing process. It is our understanding that our services cover the complete life cycle of our Wilo products – to live up to the sustainable requirements of our customers."
The Central Bank of Ireland also takes a pro-active approach to managing environmental obligations, which results in eg rainwater harvesting at North Wall Quay campus. This method is a simple and smart way to collect rainfall for further usage. Capturing the water can help recharge local aquifers or avoid urban flooding and thus create a sustainable water management.
