Space-saving and easy-to-install cascade system combines six Vitodens 200-W boilers to keep visitors warm at London’s new tourist attraction
Viessmann boilers have been specified for the revamped Postal Museum, which has recently opened its doors to visitors after a major £26 m redevelopment supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Museum’s home, Calthorpe House in Farringdon, is now equipped with six 49 kW Vitodens 200-W gas condensing boilers combined in a cascade for a total maximum output of 294 kW. These provide warmth to the Museum’s new, 500 square-metre exhibition space, which is divided into six zones.
Viessmann’s recently-launched cascade system allows anything from two to six wall-mounted or floor-standing boilers to be combined, has three adjustable settings to accept differing boiler heights, and can accommodate the 49, 60, 80 and 99 kW models from the Vitodens 200-W range. The system requires 30 per cent less space than its predecessor, making it ideal for plantrooms with a small footprint or limited headroom, and is suitable for row, block, or corner installations. Installation time is halved, thanks to an easy-assembly frame and fully pre-assembled heating circuit connection set.
Calthorpe House was formerly a Royal Mail administrative office and factory with exhibition and archive areas. Work on the building has included replacement of the roof, construction of an extension, and demolition of walls and floors to create larger open spaces. The new exhibition spans five centuries of history about “the world’s first social network – the post” and covers everything from groundbreaking design and quirky technology to the intimacy of personal letters.
Part of the Postal Museum is the Mail Rail, where visitors will be able to take a 20-minute underground ride through tunnels and station platforms previously hidden from the public on a line which linked six sorting offices with the mainline stations at Liverpool Street and Paddington.
