The rights to one of the UK’s leading commercial heating management systems are being offered for sale after the liquidation of the company which developed it.
The Eco-Eclipse system is designed for commercial and institutional heating and hot water systems and is one of only six approved products on the government’s Energy Technology List. It is being sold by consultants Charterfields after London-based Energy & Environmental Systems was placed into liquidation.
The Eco-Eclipse system is used by many high-profile organisations including Sainsbury’s, the London Fire Brigade, Extracare
Charitable Trust, Barchester Healthcare, the NHS and the London Borough of Camden, which has installed it in over 140 housing blocks.
The Eco-Eclipse is uniquely positioned between costly building management systems and less highly developed systems and is ideal for buildings such as care homes, hotels, schools, hospitals, fire stations, offices and some supermarkets.It has been proven to provide savings of between 15% and 40% on fuel bills and it provides an annual return on capital of over 33%. Sales to date have exceeded £4.5m with over 1,000 systems currently in use.
The Eco-Eclipse controls the heating system economically so it fires the least number of boilers at the lowest temperature for the shortest time, whilst maintaining comfort. The integrated remote monitoring system identifies faults and sends warnings by email or text, allowing engineers to analyse the boiler’s performance. Eco-Eclipse’s position on the Energy Technology List enables users to benefit from tax relief by claiming 100% of the cost against tax in the first year.
Roger Cutting, a director with Charterfields in London, which is selling the intellectual property rights and operating systems, said: ‘The Eco-Eclipse is an easily installed and innovativeheating management system which is used by many blue-chip companies and has the potential to generate ongoing sales. This is an ideal opportunity for companies involved in heating or energy conservation, construction and maintenance, mechanical services or facilities management to extend their product portfolio and their client base.”
