Following in the footsteps of Grant Engineering's acclaimed Spira condensing wood pellet boiler, the boiler manufacturer's new Vecta condensing wood pellet boiler has been awarded two prestigious titles - 'Best Renewable Product' and 'Overall Product of the Show' at the 2015 Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) Energy Show in Dublin's RDS.
Designed to recognise, reward and encourage the development and introduction of smart energy solutions into the Irish market, the ‘Product of the Show’ awards were judged this year by a panel of highly qualified and experienced professionals from the building services, engineering, energy, and environmental sectors. Entries undergo a thorough assessment, both independently and collectively, by the panel, and the winners were announced at the 2015 Energy Show in March.
Winning these prestigious titles is not a new feat for Grant Engineering, which also took home the title of ‘Best Renewable Energy Product’ for its first condensing wood pellet boiler, the Spira, immediately following its launch at the 2011 Energy Show. Both Grant’s Spira and Vecta condensing wood pellet boilers utilise Grant’s innovative patented condensing technology and include an integrated pellet store and low-maintenance design, making them perfect renewable heating products for small businesses and homes.
Stephen Grant, founder of Grant Engineering, said, “We are delighted to have won this award for the second time at the SEAI Show. In recent years, our core focus as a company has been to provide eco-friendly solutions to the problem of rising energy costs and CO2 emissions, in the hope that we can provide a greener future for generations to come.
“We also recognise that in order to continue leading our field, we need to continue to bring something special to the marketplace. Receiving this accolade from the SEAI for our products demonstrates that we are doing just that.”
Following the popularity of Grant’s Spira condensing wood pellet boiler, Stephen Grant set out to develop a smaller wood pellet boiler which featured a more compact design, perfect for urban and suburban households, and the Vecta was born. Integrating user-friendly controls, electric monitoring – which indicates ‘burning on’, ‘low pellet’,and ‘ash removal’settings – its compact size holds up to 60kg of wood pellets.
As the ‘Spira’s ‘little brother’, the Vecta is available in outputs from 4kw to 16kw and offers a solution for home-owners looking to make the switch to renewable fuels, but who may not have the room to spare for a larger-scale wood pellet boiler installation.
