Case study: Tolvaddon Energy Park, Cornwall
Tolvaddon Energy Park is the most environmentally advanced business park in Cornwall, featuring a Kensa ground source heat pump in every office.
Tolvaddon Energy Park is the most environmentally advanced business park in Cornwall. Development was funded through a £4 million investment from the South West Regional Development agency and the Objective One European Funding Programme.
The project is a flagship commercial development heralding the very best environment friendly and sustainable construction techniques for modern buildings.
Each of the 19 individual units, ranging from 750sq ft to 5,000sq ft, have been specifically designed to minimise energy use and deliver high quality working environments for tenants and their staff.
Kensa supplied the renewable heating system through individual heat pumps located inside each of the 19 units, ranging from 4kW to 24kW Single and Twin Compact ground source heat pumps.
The Kensa range was chosen specifically for its energy efficiency, ease of installation and the only range in Europe which could effectively meet the needs of each unit within the whole business park.
The Compact heat pumps are connected to over forty 70m borehole ground arrays installed by Carnon Contracting.
