Remeha future proofs its condensing boiler ranges with 20% hydrogen blend certification and maximum BREEAM credits

Latest News Wed, Dec 8, 2021 2:41 PM


Pioneering commercial heating and hot water provider Remeha has achieved independent certification for its Quinta Ace and Gas 320/620 Ace boilers to operate on a 20% hydrogen blend. The Quinta Ace and Gas 320/620 Ace also offer NOx emissions of less than 24mg/kWh (Class 6) in compliance with the maximum two credits available under BREEAM, enhancing the sustainability of the installation.

Hydrogen is one of a combination of viable solutions that will help achieve the UK’s 2050 net zero ambition, along with electrification and low carbon heat networks. Ahead of the full conversion of the gas network to 100% hydrogen, using a blend of natural gas and 20% hydrogen across the UK could save six million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year, equivalent to taking 2.5 million combustion engine cars off the road (Source: HyDeploy).

Remeha Product Manager Paul Arnold said: “There has been a lot of hype surrounding hydrogen in recent months. Securing independent certification for our condensing boilers means peace of mind for specifiers, contractors and end users that they are future proof to the proposed blend of natural gas with 20% hydrogen.”

New commissioning settings have also been introduced for Remeha’s Quinta Ace wall hung boilers and Gas 320/620 Ace floor standing boiler range, which enable the boilers to achieve NOx emissions below 24 mg/kWh. As such, these boilers now qualify for the maximum two credits available in Pol 2 of the sustainable building assessment scheme BREEAM.

Remeha’s condensing boilers are already hybrid ready as standard, making them the perfect heat source for heat interface units, low temperature heating and hybrid installations as well as for retrofit applications.

“Condensing boilers have an important role to play in setting older buildings on the path to net zero,” said Paul. “By ensuring that our boilers are low in NOx, suitable for use with renewable and heat network technologies, and certified to operate on a future 20:80 hydrogen blend, we hope to make it easier for customers and end users to make achievable progress towards improved sustainability.”

Over the next few months, Remeha will be unveiling its expanding product portfolio for complete commercial heating and hot water solutions.

Remeha is part of Baxi UK & Ireland and BDR Thermea, a leader in hydrogen boiler development and one of only a small number of companies with demonstration products working on 100% hydrogen in the field.

The company has pledged that all products they make from 2025 will work with low carbon energy, either operating on electricity or having the ability to convert to run on hydrogen during its service life.
