In Cyprus there are currently several installations made with ecoGEO high-power heat pumps, and most of them are installed in large buildings where the consumption of air conditioning is high, such as student residences, hostels or hotels.

The last example comes from the Rocks Hotel & Casino on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. This Hotel is one of the most exclusive hotels in the country due to its spectacular location and infrastructure and also has a private beach.

The new headquarters of the Institute of Physics of London (IOP) is currently being built, with a total area of 1,560 meters distributed between offices, auditorium, exhibition gallery and a space open to the public.

Due to the unusual characteristics of this construction, this project has been an important challenge. The ecoGEO heat pumps provide heat and cold simultaneously with demands of 61 kW and 91 kW respectively. In addition, the geothermal catchment also presents unusual features by including a heat exchanger that allows to reduce the depth of the wells from 150 meters to 75 meters.

The project integrates other energy and environmental sustainability practices such as the installation of photovoltaic panels and a green roof to store and drain rainwater.

The Breathe restaurant opens its doors this 2018. This original restaurant concept goes beyond an innovative and natural gastronomy. Breathe also sought a location committed to the environment and for that better than Ecoforest technology.

To reduce the carbon footprint and make a sustainable building, prior to the construction of the building 12 holes of 120 meters each were made below it. This will be the capture system of the two ecoGEO 12-40 kW heat pumps that will be in charge of cooling the building during the summer months, providing heating in winter and providing hot water throughout the year.

In the month of July 2017, a 270 kW geothermal installation was carried out in the A Granxa Industrial Estate using 3 ecoGEO HP3 High Power heat pumps. Until the day, within the Galician Autonomous Community, this is the biggest geothermal project with ecoGEO heat pumps.

It is a complete geothermal system for the central buildings of the A Granxa Business Park. The set, consisting of a cascade of three ecoGEO HP3 heat pumps, provides heating, cooling and sanitary hot water. All this is possible thanks to its borehole system consisting of 24 wells with a depth of 140 meters each. Therefore, more than 3.5 kilometers of pipes are arranged to conduct the fluid, in this case water with ethylene glycol.

With seasonal performance yields (SPF) greater than 5, it is demonstrated that industrial geothermal energy, where demands are high, is one of the best solutions in terms of efficiency and profitability.

At Ecoforest we are open to innovative ideas and therefore we decided to collaborate in this project carried out in the Community of Madrid. This building of industrial origin has been completely redesigned applying techniques as constructive as air conditioning and control facilities to achieve a unique building. All this following the Passivhaus criteria to obtain this accreditation.

Within this project the role of Ecoforest is vital, since it uses an ecoGEO heat pump with hybrid uptake using wells and an AU12 Air Unit. An e-manager for the photovoltaic hybrid between the ecoGEO heat pump and the latest technology panels located outside the building has also been incorporated into the installation.

ABOUT ECOFOREST

The Ecoforest group was born in Vigo in 1959 at the hands of its owner and founder Mr. Jose Carlos Alonso Martínez, specializing in the heating sector. In 1993, Ecoforest became the first European manufacturer of pellet hydro stoves, bringing to the market a new, ecological and economic product.

Currently, Ecoforest is the leading company in the market with the widest range of pellet stoves and boilers. In 2012 Ecoforest decided to bet in another innovative technology and launched its first geothermal heat pump to the market, being the only Spanish manufacturer of this product and the most specialized in inverter technology on the planet.

The R&D department of Ecoforest continues to innovate every day, in order to develop more advanced and more efficient products. Currently Ecoforest products can be found in more than 30 countries around the world.
