Project Summary

Description

The decision to build the CSTS was taken in the early 90‘s by the Danish Teachers Organisation (Danmarks Lærerforening) who also owns the place today. The organisation were visionaries on renewable energy implementation schemes.
The condition/state of the building is very high. The Hotel Frederiksdal ranks among one of the best in the greater Copenhagen area.
The CSTS is only used for producing hot tap water. But the roof could easily include double square meters of panels. By that, the CSTS could also substitute the natural gas consumption for space heating in some of the sunny days in spring and autumn.
The CSTS gives the hotel a green profile, which is very important. The Management of the hotel underline this issue and say that it has a good marketing value.

Summary

The system was original build in 1992 with a hot water storage tank and a heat exchanger. In the area the city water is very hard and during the years of operation it became clear that there was a problem concerning the technical solution with the plate heat exchanger. The plant often boiled and the heat exchanger was very often blocked with calcium deposits. The yield from the plant was consequently very low.

Under a rebuilding of the hotel in 2004 the original CSTS plant was reconstructed (tank, expansion, pumps and control system) except the solar panels and main piping between roof and basement.

The reconstruction of the CSTS included two new storage tanks in series, one with a spiral heat exchanger inside for solar loop and the other with a spiral heat exchanger for the central heating system (gas boiler system). A new control and monitoring system was implemented as well.

Financing and investment

Introduction

The CSTS and the resent reconstruction has been financed by the hotel it selves. It is important for the image of the hotel to have a well functioning CSTS.

Development & experiences

Qualitative aspects of the CSTS

The hotel wish to send out a signal of being environmental conscious and at the same time save money. The installation of the CSTS was initialised by the wish of doing something to ease the environmental impact and to reduce the steadily growing gasbills.

It is an important issue in the marketing strategy.
