Hot water storage tank with vitrified accumulation LAPESA of 150 liter in 80 m2 apartments and 300 liters in 180 m2 apartments

Heating / air conditioning

Heating, cooling will be supplied by the hot / cold water lines from the hot / cold central thermal power of the community. Individual meters for the energy consumed in heating and cooling Under floor heating throughout the apartment. Air conditioning with ducts in living / dining rooms and via AIRLAN fan coils and duct CLIMAVER NETO in the bedrooms.

3. Photovoltaic Solar Installation

All homes have an A rating in energy certification achieved by the fulfillment of criteria for energy and environmental sustainability in the design of the building.

Right from the architectural stage of planning, the selection of materials, design of closing systems, insulations, orientations, shading elements everything was chosen in order to minimize the demand and energy consumption.

In water management, rainwater will be collected for irrigation for the gardens. Mediterranean plants have been chosen due to their low water consumption.

Each of the apartments will be provided with under floor heating, air cooling (fan-coils) and sanitary hot water. The complex will have a heated pool and a fitness area. For the generation of thermal energy required for these areas, the maximum amount of local resources and renewable energy available and the most efficient air conditioning technology is used. The community will be supplied by a power plant based on efficient and renewable energy technologies for the production of heat and cold, which mainly consists of: A biomass boiler, which uses local, Mallorcan wood chips to generate heat, Heat pumps with geothermal wells that make use of the stability of the temperature of the sea water, to heat with maximum efficiency. A photovoltaic solar energy will provide clean electricity to the plant.

Networks of insulated pipes carry heat and cold to all homes and heated pool. Each home will be provided with two energy meters, one to measure of heat energy and another for the consumption of cooling energy, so that each owner pays the energy he or she actually consumed.

The central distribution of heat and cold will be implemented, managed and guaranteed by the energy company Gas Natural Fenosa. This is a premium multinational company specialized in this type of supplies. The company will provide the community with specialized technical personnel to ensure the proper daily functioning and good service to owners.

With our concept the following is achieved:

  • An A rating in energy certification for all properties
  • Compared to a conventional system CO2, emissions are reduced by 177 tons per year, which is equivalent to burning 53 tons of fossil fuels
  • Reduction of the individual cost of each home
  • Elimination of individual solar thermal energy installations required by Spanish regulations, obtaining greater availability of terraces, especially important on the seafront.
  • The apartments will not have complex equipment, boilers and air conditioners.
  • Managed centralized facilities maintained and guaranteed by a solid and reliable company with qualified personnel present in the community every weekday of the year
  • Remote management of the facilities and the apartments that result in a centralized service similar to a hotel.
  • Operating cost is slightly higher than a conventional single system for the first ten years, due to the amortization of the investment, but significantly lower from year ten on.

Electricity: general

Electrical installation integrated and controlled by BUS technology. The only open STANDARD for all applications in home control and building. KNX is approved as:

  • European standard (CENELEC EN 50090 and CEN EN 13321-1).
  • International standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3).
  • Chinese standard (GB/T 20965).
  • Northamerican standard (ANSI/ASHRAE 135).

This standard is based upon more than 20 years experience in the market, including its predecessors, EIB, EHS and BatiBUS. Over 300 member companies worldwide from different application domains have almost 7000 KNX certified product groups in their catalogues. KNX Association has partnership agreements with more than 35,000 installer companies in 120 countries, more than 90 universities and over 250 training centres.

Protection box The protection box includes protections for each of the circuits, KNX actuators for control of all systems and elements.
