Long-lasting quality “Made in Germany”, efficiency, innovative strength and sustainability: Vaillant products feature many ideals of German engineering while also meeting the highest demands as system solutions.
Sustainable energy supply for a visionary project: full speed ahead for Noah’s Ark
Manfred Ceplecha from the Vaillant Group Austria is proud of the system configuration in the building services room: “Projects like this help us demonstrate the technical potential of an ecological and energy-related heating revolution.”
Every resident contributes towards the community
It goes without saying that the Noah’s Ark community in Imst, Tyrol, uses renewable energy sources: the unusual building project nestled within the Austrian Alps achieves sustainable goals across all areas of everyday living and cohabitation. The heating technology used in the building complex thus comes from Vaillant. The green brand of the Vaillant Group’s family of brands has supplied a system solution which is anything but ordinary – and which fulfils the ambitious demands of Noah’s Ark.
The project is strongly perceived among the general public. The topic has even been addressed on several occasions by the media.
Noah’s Ark in Imst is much more than a simple housing development. The residents do not lead anonymous lives next door to each other. Instead, they support each other within a vibrant community which spans many generations and social strata. The cooperation benefits from the contribution made by each individual – social points are awarded to residents for services they perform within the community.
The Vaillant system solution is ideally integrated into the living concept
The building complex, which takes the form of a ship, has 18 housing units with outdoor facilities and a shared wing, which also incorporates a bakery and spa area – as well as a communal recreation room, the centre of the community’s social life. Barely a peep can be heard from the building services room: despite not hearing it, the equipment does its bit to aid communal living – working in a highly efficient yet still particularly sustainable manner.
Manfred Ceplecha points to the devices:
Noah’s Ark has given us the opportunity to demonstrate the strengths of our brand as a one-stop supplier. The main challenge was to optimally network the components into an overall system so as to achieve the highest possible level of energy efficiency. Determining the right control sequence was essential in prioritising the renewable energy sources.
Cooperating for greater sustainability
The parallel operation of geothermal heat pump, solar system and two CHP units is unusual – the latter generate electricity which operates the heat pump and provide the swimming pool with warm water. Surplus electricity is fed into the national grid. The system is rounded off with a ventilation system, condensing technology and several storage units.
“I think the Noah’s Ark concept is wonderful. It would be great if other people copied the idea,” says Manfred Ceplecha summing up. Just a few moments later the sound of his footsteps fades away; only the quiet hum of the equipment remains.
