NATS Air Traffic Control - Prestwick Centre

EndoTherm Energy Saving Case Study
Scotland, United Kingdom

EndoTherm was installed into a NATS air traffic control centre in Ayrshire, Scotland. 

The Prestwick Centre in Ayrshire is NATS northern office and handles air traffic across northern England, Scotland and out into North East Atlantic. It is a 14,000 square meter mixed use commercial building. The site is heated by air conditioned systems and fan coils that are powered by five 247.5kW boilers (combined rating of 1,237.5kW).

The system was also dosed with inhibitor and glycol which is commonly used as an anti-freeze. Both products EndoTherm has proven compatibility with.

The presence of a large 8000 square metre open plan operations room poses unique challenges for space heating energy reduction. Maintaining a comfortable and consistent temperature throughout such a vast area can be challenging due to the potential for heat stratification, air movement, and variable occupancy levels. EndoTherm is able to reduce the space heating energy consumption regardless of these factors.

Creating a comfortable working environment for air traffic control staff is also vital for their well-being and productivity. Balancing heating levels to ensure occupant comfort without unnecessary energy consumption can be challenging. EndoTherm provides a reduction in energy usage without compromising comfort levels.

Over a 10-month period using EndoTherm, NATS Prestwick Centre saved 46,370Kg of CO₂e. This carbon reduction is equivalent to:

“In April 2015 NATS Facility Management introduced EndoTherm and Glycol into its Prestwick Centre heating system. The results have been impressive, 16% reduction in energy and a CO2 reduction of 46 Tonnes..”
