Bath and West pavilion receives AC from R32 Smart Cassettes

Toshiba Carrier UK’s (TCUK) low Global Warming Potential (GWP) R32 refrigerant Smart Cassettes are key to the new air conditioning system at the recently refurbished Bath and West Showground restaurant.

The 240-acre venue’s two-storey restaurant and bar has undergone a £1.2million refurbishment, and can now accommodate up to 850 seated visitors in comfort. Renamed the Wessex Pavilion, the venue will now host large weddings, awards dinners, black tie events and conferences.

The cooling solution was installed by Apple Technical Solutions working with Toshiba sales manager, Wayne Dolley. Sean Marden, managing director at Apple Technical Solutions, said: “The venue caters for large volumes of people during major events. This requires significant cooling and fresh air input to ensure high quality, pleasant conditions are maintained throughout the year.

“Working with Toshiba’s Wayne Dolley, we proposed an approach based on Toshiba’s new high efficiency Smart Cassettes and traditional fresh air units with heat recovery. The system achieves the cooling and high-quality environment required, along with significantly reduced energy costs. The client was delighted with the solution.”

The system consists of 19 energy efficient Toshiba Super Digital Inverter (SDI) outdoor units connected to Smart Cassette indoor units, and six Toshiba VNM fresh air ventilation units with air-to-air heat recovery for even higher efficiency. It serves the venue’s restaurant, bar area, kitchen and common areas across two floors.

Mr Marden added: “We are strong supporters of systems that run on low GWP refrigerant, R32. The Toshiba equipment has proven to be highly reliable, ahead of other well-known manufacturers. As a result, Toshiba is now our go-to air conditioning brand. Since the equipment was installed, summer conditions have produced some of the hottest temperatures ever experienced in the UK, and the equipment has performed impeccably.”
