The problem

To provide a constant temperature and ventilation system for a 3MWhr energy storage component within a PureWave® Storage Management System supplied by S&C Electric Europe Ltd accommodating over 3000 lead-acid batteries from Japan on a remote island location in Scotland. The challenges faced included contending with 90mph winds from all directions, heavy rain which was one of the UK’s worst storm periods of recent years.

The Solution

We designed a solution which involved supplying a Hitachi VRF system complete with heat recovery modules to facilitate the required air changes in the storage space. A control panel was also designed and installed to interface with a Hydrogen alarm system and an extraction system to evacuate the building in the event of a high level of Hydrogen being detected.

Follow up

The facility is now fully operational and the Hydrogen alarm system has been actuated and been proved to be performing as per the design criteria.

Client comments

Nick Watkins, Managing Director,Thamesgate Interiors, says, “We have done a lot of projects with CCPHVAC over the last ten years.  This three month long project was difficult and challenging throughout. CCPHVAC performed magnificently in view of the difficulties we faced, and were an integral part of the team that made the project a success.”
