Trane pumps help decarbonise schools 01 August 2023

Trane heat pumps

Trane has confirmed its heat pump solutions have helped decarbonise the heating systems of 31 schools in the Italian district of Fiumicino.

The project – which includes the electrification of heating systems, installation of photovoltaic systems, and the creation of an automated management system – is expected to generate energy savings equivalent of around 650 TOE (Tonnes of Oil Equivalent) of heat and electricity.

The decarbonisation of the heating systems involved the redevelopment of 31 thermal power plants, removal of old gas boilers and installation of Trane heat pumps. The air to water pumps are said to offer a renewable solution to carbon-intensive space heating demands:

  • Trane Sintesis Advantage CXAF heat pumps are claimed to deliver 40°C hot water at -15°C ambient air temperature. For boiler installations coupled with medium temperature radiators in average requiring hot water of 45°C, the pump can efficiently meet that requirement at -10°C ambient air temperature.
  • Trane Conquest CXAX air-to-water scroll heat pump is said to delivers reversible cooling and heating at wide operating maps reaching down to -15°C ambient air and offers up to 60°C leaving hot water temperature.
  • Trane Cube CXB pumps produce, leaving hot water up to 65°C and down to -10°C outdoor air temperature. With low ambient air kit, the unit is expected to provide up to 55°C down to -20°C outdoor air temperature.

  • Louis Rompre, portfolio manager at Trane in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “With gains in the decarbonisation of the electricity grid, the future of how we heat our buildings must surely be electric, contributing to safer buildings and improving the air quality of our cities. Replacing gas boilers that contribute significantly to NOx and CO2 emissions worsening the air quality around schools is particularly important for the wellbeing of children and neighbours.”
