On Tuesday Swegon presented the innovative ventilation system TELLUS at the Mostra Convegno Expocomfort in Milano, Italy.
TELLUS can help a property owner save up to 30 percent of the energy needed to ventilate, heat and cool a building, compared with a conventional ventilation system. Everything is also integrated in one single unit, making it easy to install and operate.
“The earlier in the planning process of a building we can come in and help our customers with the total solution, the greater the opportunity to save energy and get a total economic positive solution. The cost of TELLUS is lower than purchasing and installing separate components”, explains Markus Kalo, Product Manager at Swegon, and continues:
“It's the same components, except that they are packaged in a compact and quality assured manner. We have run a number of systems for nearly two years now and are confident in our design”.
When we introduced the compact ventilation unit with built-in control, GOLD 1994, many felt that they were two completely different contracts that could not be combined into one product. Now, compact unit with built-in control is the obvious choice and has become industry practice. What we do now with TELLUS is to also integrate heating, cooling and hot tap water in a compact, energy-optimized manner.
There are many ways to temper and ventilate a building. Sometimes the cooling is only distributed by air, sometimes in combination with water-based modules that can both cool and heat the room it is placed in. TELLUS can solve both problems, although it prefers to use air and water.
In the future TELLUS will probably be exported to the US, the Middle East, India and China. Investment company Latour's wholly owned subsidiary Swegon opens towards the end of the year a plant in India and offices in Shanghai, China.
Mats Holmqvist, CEO of Swegon, says:
“TELLUS is a fantastic example of Swegon’s holistic and systems thinking. We lead the industry with innovations and new benchmarks, and thus creating the world's best indoor environment for man and environment”.
