SMARTech energy have been working with Wiltshire Council on an energy management solution to reduce their carbon output and energy reduction.

The initial site that was worked on was Devizes Leisure Centre where impressive savings have been identified and when put in to practice are now being achieved.

SMARTech energy have replaced the old 32.5KW Chiller which cools the gym and fitness studio. This has been upgraded to two SMART evaporative cooling systems which each has a maximum power rating of 3.6kW. The technology works by moving outside air over water soaked filters which changes the state of the air and lowers it temperature, which when compared to air conditioning or chillers can operate with up to 90% less energy and no harmful refrigerants are required.

When designing and specifying the energy management solution, SMARTech energy looked at the constant heat loads within Devizes Leisure Centre and targeted to reduce this heat load to ensure the system ran as optimal as possible. This was identified as the traditional fluorescent lighting which we upgraded to energy efficient LED lighting to reduce the average temperature within the gym by one degree.

The new SMART evaporative cooling system is designed to be controlled by PLC controller (Programmable Logic Controller) to allow easy access and parameter adjustments of the system, which is accessed via a touchscreen. We also had bespoke scheduling tool developed to allow schedules to be set up and easily adjusted enabling automated variance in temperatures for each zones for various classes.

SMARTech energy Managing Director Stuart Pearce said,

“ We are delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Wiltshire Councils and Devizes Leisure Centre to install the SMART evaporative cooling systems. By taking a holistic approach to energy management and not looking at the cooling in isolation, we have been able to identify impressive savings for Devizes Leisure Centre”.
