Viessmann Climate Solutions UK, a leading international manufacturer of heating, cooling, and industrial energy systems, has partnered with Edwardian Hotels, one of the UK's leading luxury hotel groups, to deliver significant energy savings across its estate.  

The first two installations of the partnership were completed in 2023 at the Edwardian Hotel in Manchester and the Radisson Blu Edwardian Heathrow with both hotels receiving combined heat and power (CHP) units resulting in a 35% energy saving, a 146,000 kg reduction in carbon, and the investment of over £250,000 will have been recouped within four months.  

The Edwardian Hotel on Peter Street in central Manchester received a 96% efficient 260 kW Viessmann EM260 CHP unit, replacing a 70% efficient CHP unit. The 8.5 tonne unit was delivered by a 200-tonne crane with 95 tonnes of ballast, to the hotel’s 15th-floor plant room via an opening in the roof (see video below). The new CHP joins four existing Viessmann Vitoplex boilers to supply the hotel's complete heating and hot water needs.

Ian Hurst, Engineering Solutions Manager at Viessmann, said, "We are proud to be working with Edwardian Hotels to deliver these significant energy and carbon savings. The project showcases Viessmann’s capability to manage the entire complex installation process, from system design to installation, and to deliver maximum efficiency. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Edwardian Hotels in the future."
