Stokvis R600 series boiler replaces original at Surrey hotel
After nearly 30 years’ reliable service at a large hotel and conference centre in Surrey, one of the original Stokvis Econoflame R18 gas boilers has been replaced with the modern equivalent.
The boiler plant at the Holiday Inn Guildford is maintained by Economy Heating Services, which has long experience of the hotel industry, with the company having no hesitation in recommending a Stokvis R607 for the project.
The new boiler offers the first response to demand from the 168 guest bedrooms, kitchens, pool complex and other facilities.
A spokesperson for Economy Heating Services, commented: “As a specialist heating installer dealing mainly with hotels, as well as some schools and other types of property across England and Wales, we have a good working relationship with Stokvis and frequently recommend the manufacturer’s equipment to our clients based on their performance and the level of service provided.
“In the case of the Holiday Inn Guildford, which is one of the chain’s bigger venues, the hotel had two Stokvis R18s when it was built in the 1980s. Now one of the original boilers needed replacing, we recommended the R607, which has been installed and set up as the lead boiler. This means it provides the bulk of the load for the bedrooms, kitchens, leisure complex with pool and Jacuzzi, as well as the conference facilities.
“The ground floor boiler room also still contains the original pair of Stokvis Econoplate heat exchangers and a later buffer vessel for the hot water service.”
The R607 is a fully modulating gas fired boiler which responds to match demand in the most fuel efficient manner possible, while continuing to offer reliability and low maintenance characteristics.
