Durapipe’s SuperFLO ABS chilled water pipework system has been installed as part of an upgrade to the chilled water system at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

In order to cater for future planned expansion works to the hospital, a new chilled water system was required to ensure that the hospital’s air conditioning and ventilation systems can withstand an increase in capacity. As a result, contractor Metromec has installed a new 800kW chiller and required a reliable pipework system to work with the new unit.
Marc Wort from Metromec said: “The main challenge with this project was getting the pipework to the roof, with the limited access posing further complications. Durapipe SuperFLO ABS offers significant weight advantages over steel so proved much easier to get up to the roof.
 
“We knew the pipe system could meet the performance needs, and with the installation benefits that it offered us, it was the ideal pipework system for the project.”
