Toshiba VRF completes awards hat-trick

H&V-News-Awards-logoUK: Toshiba completed a unique hat-trick tonight when its SMMS-e VRF air conditioning system won a third major UK award this year.

The top performing VRF system, introduced last year, followed up earlier wins by taking the Building Services Product of the Year – HVAC Supply title at tonight’s H&V News Awards.

Already this year, the SMMS-e has been named Product of the Year at both the National ACR & Heat Pump Awards and the ACR News Awards.

Tonight’s H&V News awards at The Grosvenor Hotel in London also saw Cool-Therm win Building Services Project of the Year for its involvement in an energy efficient replacment of the cooling and heating system in one of the iconic buildings in London’s Canary Wharf. They employed six Clima Tech air handling units linked to six Geoclima water-to-air heat pumps.

Viessmann’s Heating with ice system was recognised in the Renewable Project of the Year – Private category for its ground-breaking HUF Haus installation in Weybridge. Viessmann collaborated with HUF Haus to equip a residential property with its innovative ice store system, which recovers energy from renewable sources to heat or cool a building and to heat domestic hot water.

With cooling having an increasing influence on these awards, the evening was crowned when London South Bank University’s and London Underground were recognised for their efforts to cool the tube by taking the Collaboration of the Year award.
