As there's a risk of a gas shortage in the upcoming heating season which will affect our office in Kyiv, our Ukrainian team found a perfect solution. They installed a new heating system with electric boilers and a storage tank in the building.
"We designed, planned, and installed one of the most complex heating systems, and I believe everything turned out as it should. There are things to adjust, but the system as a whole works. It's still in the infant stages, but I am sure this is one of the most effective systems of its kind," says Technical Support Engineer Kyrylo Baranchuk, who devised this idea.
Some may think installing an electric boiler is not a logical choice considering the electricity shortages in Kyiv which often lead to scheduled shutdowns during the working day, but the team have considered this issue and have a solution. The heating system will work at night, accumulating and storing heat, and then releasing it during the day when needed, without using electricity when the power system is overloaded.
Interestingly, it was possible to reuse some components from the old system which is an excellent example of Danfoss' quality: the meter still works properly after 15 years!
