In the municipality of Kalundborg, they have installed 39 NORDICCO® HVLS fans spread across 16 different facilities. The installations cover places such as schools, sports facilities, libraries, and the town hall. The latest installation undertaken was with two HVLS fans, each measuring 5 meters in diameter, and were installed at the Hoeng sports facility. In 2018, the local council implemented the ‘Strategic Energy Plan 2035’, which set the framework, scope and guidelines for their desired transition toward a fully sustainable municipality by the year 2035. Guided by this, they pinpointed HVLS fans from Nordicco to be amongst the ideal solutions in achieving this.
With the HVLS ceiling fan, we can utilise the heat that lingers under the ceiling, previously benefitting absolutely no one. So, by slowly moving this air around the room, the heat can then be used sensibly and at the same time, we’re able to see energy savings “
The installation of the HVLS fans has lived up to any and all expectations that we had.”
“We made the purchase decision for the NORDICCO® fans with the sole intention to have them pushing the air upwards (reverse mode), as this slowly disperses the hot air that tends to build up under the ceiling, and destratifies the room. The concept of running the fans in forward mode was not something which we were particularly interested in initially, but with the heatwave throughout the summer, this quickly also became an additional bonus, and was met with great feedback by both employees and students at the school. Many of the students would even gather under the fan, just to feel the light breeze provided. It was an unexpected success! Thereafter, the Forward mode usage became more common throughout the municipality’s fan installations.” – Henrik Pedersen
With a NORDICCO® Fan Management System (FMS), It’s now possible to pre-configure the NORDICCO® fan’s operations, both in terms of speed, as well as the direction (forward/reverse), ensuring that it’s constantly operating according to the needs of the specific activity taking place in the room. Aside from this providing the best user experience, it also helps to maximise the positive effects that it has on the indoor climate.
“From our initial vantage point, the only drawback we could think of was in times of badminton play, as they couldn’t be turned on due to the air movement caused. But we’ve recently been informed by the players, that their ball play doesn’t seem to be affected by the fan, so they don’t even turn them off during training. The fans are set at a speed of around 30-40% in “Reverse” mode, and they’ve yet to experience any problem with it, so we’re happy on all fronts!” – Henrik Pedersen
