Fitzroy Pool is Melbourne’s premier 50-metre outdoor heated pool. The pool, a favourite summer playground for Yarra residents, recently introduced a Cogeneration system to heat the facility.
The site includes:
- Outdoor 50m Pool
- Outdoor toddler pool
- A newly refurbished gym
- Spinning studio
- Group fitness classroom
- Sauna facilities
- Steam room facilities
The main objectives were
- Reduced the running costs of the pool
- Reducing the facilities carbon footprint.
Goldman Energy Installed a TEDOM T50 cogeneration unit in the Fitzroy Pool in 2011 / 2012.
We designed, installed, commissioned and now maintain the unit. Goldman Energy’s project management team oversaw the entire installation.
The pool is run year-round; therefore the water heating is vital for a pool located in Victoria. Goldman Energy’s Cogeneration system allows Fitzroy to maintain their temperature around 29oC.
