Breweries

A good and plentiful supply of water is critical in the brewing industry. The quality of the water and its cost are fundamental to business success and having your own supply will add a significant advantage.

Benefits

  • You will save up to 90% of your water usage costs.
  • All capital costs are quickly recouped – typically 3-4 years.
  • Any daily abstraction of less than 20,000 litres is free from licensing. This may be augmented by the use of storage facilities.
  • There are no water charges after installation.
  • You will have the control of your own supply which is independent of any Water Authorities
  • Borehole water is purer and chemical free because it does not have to travel through long distance pipework from reservoirs and rivers.
  • You will have a sustainable supply and pressure which is unaffected by drought conditions and hosepipe bans.
  • Boreholes are not affected by mains supply problems such as leaks.
  • Many sites suffer from low water pressure and quality which can lead to inadequate supply issues. Your own borehole will prevent this.
  • All materials used are of the highest quality and WRAS & DWI approved.

How much can you save?

Installing your own water supply now will drastically reduce costs ensuring a sustainable future.

For example, assuming an annual water cost of £10,000, not only can you expect to reduce this annual cost by 90% but also the initial cost of installation could be recovered in only 18 months.

Facility Heating and Cooling

The current trend for renewable energy has seen a rapid rise in the use of ground source heating systems (GSHP). Using borehole technology we install both open and closed vertical collector loops which transmit via heat pumps systems.

The use of vertical loops rather than horizontal ones has the advantage of utilising less space and the heat collection is not affected by fluctuations in ground or air temperatures. The deeper the borehole is drilled the less susceptible the collector is to extreme seasonal temperatures or soil conditions.

GSHP systems are particularly useful where ‘space heating’ is required eg. open-plan offices, and factory working areas. However, in warm conditions the heat pump system is reversible so that cool air conditioning can take place.
