Toshiba and CIAT team up at Ibis Bridgwater

Guests staying at the new 144-bed Ibis Hotel in Bridgwater will benefit from a high efficiency heat recovery-based air conditioning system by Toshiba and CIAT.

The hotel, developed by Zeal Hotels in association with Accor, is designed to be highly energy efficient, with the air conditioning system making use of ‘free’ energy recovered from the environment, enabling it to operate even more efficiently and with lower running costs.

The five-storey development includes Keepers Bar and a restaurant, plus high quality meeting facilities, air conditioned throughout with Toshiba’s award-winning Super Heat Recovery Multi (SHRM-e) VRF system. Nine roof-top mounted Toshiba outdoor VRF condensing units supply the company’s super-quiet concealed indoor fan coil units (FCUs).

The design includes two high performance Toshiba air-to-air heat recovery ventilation units, which capture waste heat from exhaust air to temper incoming fresh air, further reducing energy use.

An air-to-water CIAT Ereba Access heat pump is used to pre-heat hot water up to 45 degrees C, before being boosted to operating temperature by a high efficiency gas boiler. The Eurovent-certified heat pump is equipped with an integrated hydronic module, and offers the ability for two units to operate in parallel. A Toshiba split system serving the hotel’s comms room completes the air conditioning system.

The hotel is due to open in early 2021.
