Rheem's Next Generation of Commercial Water Heating

Rheem's Next Generation of Commercial Water Heating

Issue 1: September 2017

Since the privatisation of Essendon Airport in 2001, logistics and property company Essendon Fields Pty Ltd (EFPL) has transformed the area into a vibrant business and aviation hub.

In May 2017, EFPL officially opened its most exciting project yet – Australia’s first Hyatt Place Hotel with adjoining Australian Events Centre. And Rheem Commercial in Victoria is proud to be involved. In partnership with Complete Plumbing Contracting, Rheem recommended the Tankpak Series 2 system as the ideal commercial water heating solution for this new $60 million multi-story development.

Reliable mains pressure and quick recovery

The new Rheem Tankpak Series 2, with 12 continuous flow units and two 410L storage tanks, delivers reliable mains pressure hot water to 166 luxury guest rooms and all catering and hospitality facilities within the Australian Events Centre.

“The innovative Tankpak system uses a combination of our industry leading continuous flow technology and storage to successfully meet the demands of a large luxury hotel complex,” says Scott Johnson, Rheem’s commercial sales manager, Victoria.

“When sizing the system, we were required to deliver 8,300L of mains pressure hot water during peak periods which the Tankpak 12 is more than capable of achieving. And our use of top down heating ensures quick recovery.”

With the Tankpak Series 2 assembled offsite and craned onto the roof, the Rheem Commercial team provided invaluable installation and commissioning assistance, positioning the system quickly and easily into the footprint allocated for the rooftop hot water plant.
“This installation certainly highlighted the benefits of Tankpak’s plumbing connections and the simplicity of assembly and positioning,” says Scott. “Working with Complete Plumbing Contracting has been a pleasure. The company is well known for its professionalism, quality and attention to detail - and Hyatt Place is no exception.”
