Spain: Showorking Rivas

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.

Hungary: Historic museum in Hegyvidék

In Budapest we can find the Zugligeti Lóvasút building heated with ecoGEO heat pumps. The construction of this building dates from the late nineteenth century, being at first the final railway station on horseback. Later, it would end up becoming a simple stop that included in its interior other types of services within the facilities, such as a post office. Finally in 1977 it loses all its functionality and is abandoned.

After several attempts, a reconstruction project is finally approved and the building becomes a museum with coffee shop and restaurant. Two high-power Ecoforest geothermal heat pumps were installed to service this building: ecoGEO HP1 12-40 kW and ecoGEO HP3 15-70 kW.

Spain: Pellet boiler Cantina Nova

Curious installation made in Barcelona where it was decided to make a wooden plant room in the courtyard attached to the main house. This "technical room" includes all the elements of the installation, the boiler model Cantina Nova  next to the DHW tank and the gas outlet.

Thanks to the wifi access compatible with all Ecoforest devices, the user can switch on, switch off and even modify all the parameters of the boiler. This allows you to control the boiler comfortably from your home.

Scotland: Dairy farm

This interesting project is a combination of different renewable energies, including in the installation a wind turbine, a biomass boiler and three ecoGEO heat pumps. The objective of the project was to deliver an efficient and renewable energy solution within a dairy farm with more than 750 cattle.

The function of both the biomass boiler and the heat pumps is the drying of recycled manure solids in a practice known as "Green Bedding". Moreover, an air turbine for the production of electricity was installed making the system even more efficient because during the most windy days, the whole installation can work with no need to be attached to the electricity grid.

United Kingdom: St Stephen's church, Lympne

Last years the use of heat pumps has been extended for the climatization of Churches in the United Kingdom. Within all the examples that we can find we have selected the case of the Church St Stephen's Church, in England.

This church, built from stone during the 11th century, underwent several extensions in the following three hundred years with a North tower and later a South tower being completly rebuilt. In 1880 the first restoration was realized by the architect James Pearson Albin.

In 2015, a new change in the Church began to be managed, in this case the aim was to reduce the heating costs that were growing ever larger due to the use of old oil boilers, radiators and bad insulation. To solve this problem and to have a more efficient system, an Ecoforest ecoGEO B1 5-22 kW EH heat pump together with new underfloor heating was installed, providing the church with heating and sanitary domestic hot water.

ABOUT ECOFOREST

The Ecoforest group was founded in Vigo in 1959 at the hands of its owner and founder 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 ground source 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.
