The heat is on as 1,000 homes get new air source systems

10th August 2021

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.

OVO Energy Solutions put the contract out for application on behalf of Argyll Community Housing Association.

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.”

Procast energy Services have delivered a number of important renewable energy projects in a variety of sectors across the country including Strathaven Airfield, Stockimuir Road and Paisley.
