Made in Germany
Heat pumps are efficient and environmentally friendly. And they are becoming increasingly popular with customers. The Vaillant Group is adjusted to the increasing demand. Both the product range and the production capacities are growing steadily.
The Remscheid plant, where copper pipes were once moulded into shape, has been the home of new, state-of-the-art heat pump production lines since 2018. These production lines, which measure 120 metres in length and comprise 32 workstations, are where the new Vaillant heat pump models recoCOMPACT exclusive and versoTHERM plus are made. The two models serve different segments and thus supplement the Vaillant Group’s heat pump portfolio. Both heat pumps source energy from the ambient air. The indoor recoCOMPACT exclusive is a compact all-in-one solution comprising a heat pump, a hot-water storage and a ventilation unit. It supplies heating, hot water and fresh air, not to mention cooling if desired. The versoTHERM plus is also an indoor model and can be flexibly combined with further components to create a customised system. Both systems are, of course, compatible with photovoltaic technology.
In order to meet growing customer demand from the various market segments, the Vaillant Group is continuing to expand its heat pump portfolio in 2019.
At the ISH trade fair in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, the new aroSTOR hot-water heat pump and the aroTHERM plus monobloc air-water heat pump were unveiled to a specialist audience. These two models are the first to use the natural refrigerant R290, enabling high flow temperatures and high hot-water temperatures. As a result, these two heat pumps are ideal for modernisation projects. The Vaillant Group’s goal is to occupy a market position in the heat pump segment that is as strong as the one held in the field of efficient gas technologies.
