Located on Morphett Street in Adelaide’s booming northwest, Vision sits in the epicentre of the city’s educational, cultural, dining and entertainment precincts. Just moments from Adelaide’s best universities and a stone’s throw from Central Market, Chinatown and Rundle Mall, the contemporary development sets a new standard in desirable inner-city living.
Hot Water Requirements
Vision’s design required a significant degree of solar energy contribution towards its hot water needs. The solution needed to have the ability to service 119 onebed apartments, 60 two-bed apartments, 9 three-bed apartments, we well as 3 penthouses.
Rheem supplied a twelve heater Tankpak Series 2 system with two Commercial Storage vitreous enamel lined tanks. The twelve heaters provide top down heating to the building and redundancy ensuring the system is able to operate at its required capacity at all times. Rheem also provided a solar pre-heat package consisting of eight Commercial Storage tanks and twenty four solar collectors. The solar component contributes approximately 25% of the Summer daily load requirements.
