Laing’s D5solar pump scoops the H&V News Awards 2007
The H&V News Awards 2007, UK's leading event for the heating and ventilating industry for recognising and rewarding excellence under the show's theme of "Sustainable Solutions for the Future" became a great success for Laing's DC pump D5solar. The audience of over 1000 individuals from across the industry cheered enthusiastically for 18 winning companies, organisations and individuals, with Laing's solar pump being the only product awarded twice in gold, and once in silver.
Laing's D5solar pump can be used wherever a highly efficient circulation pump is needed without a direct connection to AC power for domestic hot water or water glycol circulation. It can be connected directly to a photovoltaic panel. The product includes self-optimising software that modifies the pump's operating point on the voltage-current curve of the photovoltaic panel to determine the point of maximum performance (MPP-Tracking). The pump has also been configured with back up power so that it will still work even when there is not much sunlight available, and also has Automatic Performance Optimisation for electronic commutation.
These features enabled the pump to win the "Domestic H&V Product of the Year". It is a "great idea and clever combination of technologies serving an obvious need", according to this year's judging panel. These features also won the award for the "Industrial/Commercial Heating Product of the Year". The DC powered spherical motor pump has been short-listed in these two separate categories because it was regarded by the judges as an excellent innovation combining two renewable technologies to deliver the ultimate in low energy solutions. And as two winning awards seem not to be enough for that smart little pump, it was also silver awarded as the "Renewable Product of the Year".
"Since we entered the UK market some years ago, we offer our spherical motor pumps and central heating systems with enormous growing success. We are very happy and proud of being awarded three times in a contest competing with some of the biggest brand names in the industry", says Robin Pomreinke, Laing's UK Sales Manager.
This year's Heating and Ventilating 2007 was supported by some of the biggest names in the sector including Baxi Potterton, Daikin, Férroli, Flaktwoods, Lochinvar, MHS Boilers, Powrmatic, Systemair, Vaillant, Viessmann and Vokera. It was also fully supported by the industry's leading trade associations, CIBSE, FETA the HVCA and ICOM Energy Association.
