Working in close conjunction with Geyser Thermal Energy and Pure Purchasing Consultants, The Oxfordshire’s buildings will, in just a few months’ time, be using water from one of the lakes on its golf course to provide its energy.
Without major disruption its luxury 50-bedroom hotel, spa and widely acclaimed golf course, the retrofit includes installation of six (two different sized) high efficiency heat pumps, which have a total output of 350kW. They will use the lake as a heat source to provide the heating, cooling and hot water for all of the built areas on site, including the hotel, spa, bar and offices.
General manager of The Oxfordshire, Ryan Bezuidenhout explains: “Backed by our forward-thinking owners, this exciting new investment is going to make a direct, positive impact on our bottom line and take a big step towards sustaining our business as we free ourselves from the inevitability of soaring utility bills”.
