SPN October 2013 81 Heatstar Units Feature In One Of The


World’s Most Exclusive Marina Resorts A new exclusive marina resort is being developed in the Bay of Kotor on the Dalmatian coast of the Adriatic Sea between Greece and Croatia – Porto Montenegro.


Porto Montenegro is being billed as the St


Tropez of the Adriatic and has been built to be one of the very few marinas with berths and facilities to accommodate the world’s largest superyachts. This £520m resort includes luxury apartments, hotels, exclusive shops and restaurants, a yacht club and a choice of two golf clubs. At the heart of the resort is the aesthetically beautiful Lido Mar swimming pool. With its 215 ft infinity pool and its stylish surroundings it is the perfect venue for the super rich to relax and party. In fact it was the venue recently for Nat Rothschild of the famous banking dynasty to hold his 40th birthday party. His guests included Roman Abramovich, Jimmy Choo shoes boss Tamara Mellon and Lord Mandelson. The best demand the best pool products and when it came to heating this state of the art infinity pool the project specifiers chose Heatstar as an acknowledged market leader in pool heating and environmental control systems. One of the key specifiers for this part of the project was Aquascapes Limited through their


Managing Director and ISPE member, Sean Connelly. His engineering skills were put to the test when he was commissioned to provide project management and expert consultancy for the construction of the 215 ft infinity pool. This dynamic pool is built to sit inside what was once a submarine dry dock and suspended out over the Adriatic Sea. A pool of this size, sophistication and in this location, required a high quality heat pump unit which is totally reliable in operation. Also a unit which is powerful enough to maintain the heating levels demanded and offer the opportunity to extend the season. Heatstar’s range of high capacity commercial heat pump systems includes just such a product - the Aquarius 16 SDF aerothermal heat pump. To ensure a flawless heating performance, the installation required three of these units. Each unit outputs 85.6 kW at 20°C ambient air temperature.
