Cathedral selects new Remeha Quinta Ace 160 as most suitable boiler for refurbishment
When all four boilers at historic St Davids Cathedral in Pembrokeshire began to fail, the Cathedral was keen to restore reliable and effective heating with high efficiency replacement boilers. Following the recommendation of contractor Andrew Thomas of G.G. Thomas & Son Ltd, Remeha boilers were selected due to the brand’s reputation for high quality and high performance.
“The key requirements for the Cathedral were improved reliability and efficiency which we felt would be best achieved with Remeha boilers,” said Andrew Thomas. “We have fitted many Remeha boilers over the years and they have proved consistently reliable. We’re big fans of Remeha – from the quality of the products to the expert after-sales service and support, it’s all excellent.”
Due to the space constraints of the small plant room at the Cathedral, this project requires an extremely compact heating solution that will nevertheless achieve the necessary heat output demand. With their small dimensions and high thermal output, the new Quinta Ace 160 boilers are able to meet the heat demand of the Cathedral in a fraction of the space of other boilers. In addition, they offer flexible installation options which will help ensure a smooth installation at the 12th century Cathedral with its listed status and medieval fabric.
Andrew Thomas explained: “Taking into account the output required to heat the Cathedral, the space constraints of the plant room and the fabric of the building, the Remeha Quinta Ace 160 was the most suitable boiler for this project. We’re very impressed. Such a compact boiler with such a high output – it’s fantastic.”
