Grant Vecta wins top prize at SEAI Energy Show 2015

Grant Vecta Awards 2015Following in the footsteps of Grant’s acclaimed ‘Spira’ condensing wood pellet boiler, the new Vecta condensing wood pellet boiler has been awarded two prestigious titles of Best Renewable Product of Overall Product and Overall Product of the Show at the 2015 Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) Energy Show in Dublin’s RDS.

Designed to recognise, reward and encourage the development and introduction of smart energy solutions, the Product of the Show awards were judged this year by a panel of highly qualified and experienced professionals from the building services, engineering, energy, and environmental sectors.  Entries undergo a thorough assessment, both independently and collectively by the panel and the winners were announced at the 2015 Energy Show.

Winning these prestigious titles is not a new feat for Grant Engineering, who also took home the title of Best Renewable Energy Product for their first condensing wood pellet boiler, the Spira, immediately following its launch at the 2011 Energy Show.  Both Grant’s Spira and Vecta condensing wood pellet boilers utilise Grant’s innovative patented condensing technology and include an integrated pellet store and low-maintenance design making them perfect renewable heating products for small businesses and homes.

Stephen Grant, Founder, Grant Engineering said, “We are delighted to have won this award for the second time at the SEAI Show. In recent years our core focus as a company has been to provide eco-friendly solutions to the problem of rising energy costs and CO2 emissions, in the hope that we can provide a greener future for generations to come. We also recognise that in order to continue leading our field we need to continue to bring something special to the marketplace, and receiving this accolade from the SEAI for our products demonstrates that we are doing just that.”

Grant-Overall-Product-of-the-Show-Company-‹-Grant-Engineering-Ltd-Product--Vecta-Condensing-Wood-Pellet-Boiler-2Following the popularity of Grant’s Spira Condensing Wood Pellet Boiler, Stephen Grant set out to develop a smaller wood pellet boiler which featured a more compact design perfect for urban and suburban households and the Vecta was born.  Integrating user-friendly controls, electric monitoring which indicates ‘burning on,’ ‘low pellet,’ and ‘ash removal’ settings, and a compact size which holds up to 60kg of wood pellets, the Vecta, the ‘little brother’ of the Spira is offering a solution for homeowners looking to make the switch to renewable fuels but that may not have the room to spare for a larger-scale wood pellet boiler installation and is available in outputs from 4kw to 16kw.
