As part of the National Heat Pump Awards, the honour for the Public Sector Project of the Year was awarded to Star Renewable Energy for its ground-breaking development of the world’s largest zero carbon 90oC district heat pump in Norway.
The nomination saw Star pitched against the likes of industry rivals such as Daikin, Mitsubishi and Danfoss
Star Renewable Energy is the recent business venture of Star Refrigeration, the UK’s largest independent industrial refrigeration engineering contractor, which was established in Scotland in 1970.
The judges said: “Star have achieved temperatures previously thought impossible. This alone should bring heatpumps closer to the entire market, but in doing so with only “future proof” natural working fluids is even more spectacular. As the Drammen project in Norway demonstrates, any building in Britain can harness local heat and avoid burning gas.
