Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth

10 Mar 2010

Built as part of the centrepiece of the Renaissance of Portsmouth Harbour Project, the Spinnaker Tower has become Portsmouth’s most prominent landmark. It stands at 115m and overlooks many attractions and areas including Gunwharf Quays and Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard.

The Tower’s structural engineering is extremely complex, its complicated shape and design required many mind bending geometric calculations.

Due to the complex design of this tower VES had to manufacture specialist bespoke heat recovery systems. Ecovent and other bespoke heat recovery systems were supplied and installed to this landmark tower.

The new Ecovent range are highly efficient heat recovery units enhancing the product portfolio of VES, the market leading heat recovery specialists. These highly adaptable units feature low energy, high efficiency fans and plate heat exchangers. The Ecovent is designed to suit all applications, offering a wide range of models for ceiling voids, plantroom and external locations, with a variety of control options to suit whole system requirements.

The units were also painted dark green so as to ‘blend in’ with the existing café colours.
