Energy Efficiency

We at the Bluewater Elite Swim Training Centre take seriously the impact that the centre will have on the environment.

For this reason we wanted to use a heating system using the cleanest energy that exists today. The solution we chose was a combination of solar heating and a biomass burner. The solar panels installed on the roof of the main building heat the water using the free energy of the sun. Depending on the time of year, this provides 40 - 100 percent of our total heating requirement. For the rest, we have a burner that is fuelled using recycled wood pulp or discarded almond shells. This is predominantly waste material that has been pulped into compressed pellets that burn cleanly and efficiently. There is no oil or gas used at our site, and electricity is used only for the pumps, lighting, heating and cooling the main building and the usual office elecrical needs.
