PROCAST have won a share of a major contract to upgrade more than 1,000 homes in Argyll & Bute with air-source heat pump heating systems.
The project was secured through an open tender process and will see the group deliver this new technology right across a huge, mainly rural, local authority area.
It will see 1045 new ASHP heating systems installed in residential properties across Argyll & Bute between August 2021 and March 2022.
Procast, who will be one of five contractors involved, will survey, design, install and commission the systems with our team of experienced in-house staff.
The project will be headed up by the Procast Energy Services division and will involved the use of Mitsubishi and Vaillant air-source heat pumps, which are at the cutting edge of green energy technology.
Air source heat pumps absorb warmth from the outside air to heat homes – and they can still extract heat when air temperatures are as low as -15°C.
They need electricity to run but because they are extracting renewable heat from the environment, the heat output is greater than the electricity input, making them energy efficient.
A spokesman for the division said: “We are very much looking forward to playing our part in this ambitious project that will seriously improve the lives of the people in Argyll & Bute with low-cost renewable heating systems.
“This will also enhance our existing working relationship with Scottish and Southern Energy.”
