Bosch Commercial & Industrial has announced that its Greenstar Heat Interface Unit range is now BESA registered.
Developed by a group of industry experts, the BESA HIU test regime is the UK test standard for HIUs. It was originally developed to assess UK heat network operating parameters as part of a government research project into heat network efficiency.
With both E Plus and KE+ products in the Greenstar range now registered, Bosch Commercial & Industrial are the first manufacturer to have multiple HIU products BESA registered from the same range.
Compatible with Bosch Commercial & Industrial Heating’s entire product range and coming with a 2 year guarantee, the Greenstar HIU represents a premium appliance that offers up to 21 litres per-minute flow rate and incorporates components such as a differential pressure control valve (KE Plus, E Plus and E) and summer by-pass (KE Plus and E Plus).
Pete Mills, Commercial Technical Operations Manager at Bosch Commercial & Industrial states: “We’re proud to have achieved this registration for our Greenstar range. We pride ourselves on our top-quality products and customer service. It’s great to get the stamp of approval from the UK standard.
“District heating is a relatively new industry and will be essential for the UK to reach its net zero 2050 target. Using HIU with verified performance is one important part of the drive to raise technical standards for new heat networks going forward and this is recognised in the current consultation by the Government, looking into a market framework for heat networks.”
