aquatherm is your strong partner in hotel construction. With our products we create individual solutions in the areas of heating and cooling, sprinkler piping, drinking water and piping installations of air conditioning and heating systems, which guarantee maximum reliability and efficiency. With our innovative heating and cooling system aquatherm black system, for example, not only is a pleasant room climate created, but thanks to perfect control technology it also works in an energy-saving way, thus protecting the environment and ensuring low follow-up costs. With prefabricated components, which we plan and build for you, not only is the construction time shortened, but costs are also reduced.
Pipe quality like on the first day
For a hotel extension, an energy-saving piping system was sought on which no incrustation or corrosion would form even under the influence of desalinated water and high humidity.
After five years of operation the piping systems of aquatherm are like new and ensure that the circulating pumps used consume the same energy as on the first day.
The speed with which aquatherm PP pipes are joined by hot plate welding compared to steel welding was of crucial importance for this project.
The ability to prefabricate piping and deliver it to the site ready for installation allowed the client to significantly increase the number of welding jobs per day.
The durability and longevity of the PP pipes were decisive factors for the heating system, which operates around the clock, 365 days a year.
KEINE KORROSION TROTZ HOHER LUFTFEUTIGKEIT UND ENTSALZTEM WASSER
Lanzarote is a very special island. The fascinating volcanic landscape, the year-round mild climate and the rushing Atlantic Ocean make it a holiday paradise visited by tourists from all over the world, despite its size of just 58 kilometres long and 34 kilometres wide. Since 1983, Club La Santa in Tinajo, in the north-west of the island, has been welcoming all those who wish to combine their passion for sport with their holiday.
Many professional athletes from all over the world visit the Sport Hotel, as the island’s climatic conditions and the resort’s facilities allow them to train outdoors all year round, improving their performance.
KOMBINATION MIT GEOTHERMIE UND SONNENENERGIE
Due to the success and influx of visitors, the owner decided to expand the resort in 2012. The new part of the hotel consists of 50 two-storey buildings with a total of 96 apartments, a reception building, a restaurant, technical rooms, a sports centre, a conference building and two new Olympic swimming pools and two leisure pools. The building services, which include the hot water supply, the temperature control of the swimming pools and the heating and cooling of the apartments, restaurants, reception and conference rooms, were designed by Elías Casañas’ engineering firm Incanae. The experts for geothermal energy and energy saving relied on pipe systems from aquatherm. Casañas and his team have been working with aquatherm products for 15 years and are convinced of the quality.
Three systems were installed at Club La Santa: aquatherm green pipe for drinking water, aquatherm blue pipe for the distribution of hot and cold water for heating and cooling and aquatherm blue pipe ti, a pre-insulated pipe for underground heating and cooling water distribution. In total aquatherm supplied more than eight kilometres of pipes. “The beauty of this installation was that we could use the aquatherm pipes in combination with geothermal and solar energy,” says Elías Casañas.
„LÖSUNGEN SELBST IN SCHWIERIGEN SITUATIONEN“
The challenge for the plant engineers was to work with aggressive desalinated water and – as is typical on Lanzarote – high humidity, which results in the formation of condensation on the pipes in the cooling area. These two factors lead to corrosion, especially in metal pipes. However, products of aquatherm consist of the material polypropylene, which does not interact with aggressive waters. The simple installation, in which the pipe and fitting are briefly heated and then joined together, saved a lot of time during assembly.
The plant has now been operating for six years and both the owner and the maintenance manager and engineers on the project are very happy with it. “Products from aquatherm have provided us with solutions even in difficult situations. During the installation of the pipes, aquatherm even exceeded our initial expectations,” explains Diego Fernández, maintenance manager at Club La Santa. “After six years of operation the aquatherm pipes and valves are like new. There is neither corrosion nor incrustation. For this reason, the circulation pumps consume the same energy as on the first day”, says Elías Casañas.
