E.On launches heat pump project

Large-scale water-source heat pump technology has been launched with a trial project in the UK. The so-called Neatpump (pictured), manufactured by Star Renewable Energy and developed in Glasgow, Scotland, uses ammonia as a working fluid.

The trial scheme will see the technology supply renewable heating and hot water to 300 new homes in a project for utility supply company E.On in Cranbrook, near Exeter, UK.

Delivering hot water at 80 degrees C through a network of underground pipes, eventually the system will supply heat to 3500 new homes and 1.4 million square feet of industrial space, its developers say.
