Baystar along with GeoScience were responsible for designing and installing a retrofit 120kW ground source heat pump with back up oil boiler. The heat pump was designed to deliver 80% of the load.
The design involved assessing the annual load profile and potential energy delivery and various operating scenarios were considered to enable the size of system to be selected and an assessment made to ensure we had the required volume of water within the lake.
Two ground source heat pump systems have been installed for this project. They are both closed loop, horizontal installations that make use of the extensive grounds surrounding the property. One system services the heating load of the conference buildings, and the other meets the heat load of the indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi.
