Energy Efficient Hot Water Distribution on the 33rd Floor

Energy Efficient Hot Water Distribution on the 33rd Floor

Hyatt Capital Gate Hotel

Abu Dhabi, UAE


Hyatt Capital Gate Hotel occupies the 18th to the 33rd floors of this 35-storey iconic structure. The consultants were seeking a robust and energy efficient hot water distribution solution throughout the area of the hotel. 


A centralized single pipe system with nVent RAYCHEM HWAT heat tracing cables was installed to deliver hot water throughout the hotel. Requiring only half of the amount of pipework compared to a hot water recirculating system, the HWAT solution provided the required energy efficiency, achieving substantial savings compared to  conventional hot water recirculation. Additionally, by reducing the amount of heating required for water in the building, the air conditioning load was lowered. The compact HWAT design eliminates the need for hot water recirculation lines and accessories, ensuring a quick and easy installation, even in restricted spaces.
