With demand for housing in the UK greater than ever and an increase in the use of communal heating systems for apartments, many developers are choosing to install prefabricated MEP utility cupboards, which require less time on site for installation, use less space in the apartment, provide the opportunity to reduce cost and risk and enable them to deliver projects ahead of time.
Responding to this demand, Evinox Energy are thrilled to announce the launch of ModuSat FUSION, the ‘perfect fit’ prefabricated utility cupboard for communal and district heat network developments. Cupboards are supplied fully fitted, pre-tested and ready to install on-site, complete with Heat Interface Unit (HIU), Cooling Interface Unit (CIU) (Optional), Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery unit (MVHR) and all associated piping and electricals.
Combines compact design with first class manufacturing
The ultra-compact design allows for all utilities and services to be contained in one area away from the kitchen and living space, making ModuSat FUSION both practical and visually pleasing in the modern apartment setting.
Engineered and manufactured offsite to an approved design, Evinox use LEAN manufacturing principles with full assembly and end of line testing, and quality approvals including ISO9001, IS14001, BSOHSAS 18001 (health and safety), which when combined ensure the highest possible product quality and consistency. Utility cupboards are available in a standard configuration or built bespoke to project design requirements, and Evinox’s in-house design and manufacturing capability enables high volume supply, with the ability to meet the most demanding of timescales.
The ‘smart’ choice for efficiency
ModuSat FUSION offers the unique combination of ultra-compact design with ‘smart’ high efficiency HIU performance, with features including – timed Keep-Warm functionality, which allows for minimal use of heat network energy; high performance at low temperatures to meet the GLA requirements & SAP; DHW return temps under 25 degrees, as recommended in CIBSE Code of Practice, and the ability to deliver an excellent VWART! – all backed up by Independent testing to the UK standard from BESA with published results.
Not only are they the ‘perfect fit’ on site, ModuSat FUSION cupboards feature ‘plug and play’ communication connection for diagnostics, commissioning and metering data – and everything can be accessed across shared building infrastructure. Evinox also provide open protocol access to metering data through a, customer configurable web-access to the SmartTalk data logger, meaning the building operator can future proof the system and will never be tied to a single vendor for resident billing services.
