Hydronic balancing valves from Tour & Andersson are helping to stabilise indoor temperatures efficiently at an opera house in Valencia, Spain.
The heating and cooling system to the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, one of the largest such buildings in Europe, has four heat pumps that use sea water for heating and cooling, rather than relying on the mains supply for the HVAC system.
A heat recovery system employs the redundant heat to heat the sanitary water for the entire building.
Tour & Andersson created a solution for the building that uses more than 500 manual balancing valves to create the required conditions in all the spaces of the complex building.
