Champagne Sports Resort Reduces it's Electrical Consumption


July 28th, 2011

KwaZulu-Natal's Champagne Sports Resort has invested in energy efficient electrical and plumbing fittings which are significantly reducing the resort's electrical consumption.

Magnet, specialists in the design and installation of the latest energy efficiency systems, has recently installed heat pumps and low flow shower heads in the hotel block and timeshare chalets, as part of the resort's energy saving programme.

"This project involved the retrofitting of a 20 kW heat pump to the existing tank in the main hotel block, which previously was serviced by one 48 kW heat pump and an 3 200 l electrical element boiler," says Brian Howarth, Magnet's managing director. "Peak power consumption after the upgrade shows a demand saving of 81% and an average saving of 60%.

"The installation also included 2,8 kW heat pumps to the existing geyser in each timeshare unit at the resort and the fitting of low flow, energy efficient shower heads. Peak demands savings are at 70% and average savings are 91%."

Magnet specialises in the supply, implementation and support of electrical equipment and industrial instrumentation throughout Southern Africa to ensure optimum energy efficiency in diverse industries.
