Set in the most spectacular mountain location in New England, the Jordan Hotel is the premier address at Sunday River and offers sweeping views out across the valley. The property lies at the base of the resort's Jordan Bowl area, and is just two miles from the award-winning Sunday River Golf Club. The hotel offers 187 guest rooms ranging in size from standard rooms with two queen beds to three-bedroom suites. After visiting, many guests make the Jordan Hotel their second home with quarter-share ownership options. While operating as one of the largest and most successful hotels in the northern New England, the Jordan Hotel saw the opportunity to increase their profitability by reducing operating costs. Alodyne offered the Jordan Hotel a better alternative to owning their own heating equipment by providing access to the world’s best equipment, engineering, and monitoring for a simple monthly fee.
The Big StoryAs with all of our customers, the operation, maintenance, service, engineering, and financial costs of this installation were all internalized by Alodyne. We in turn deliver heat at a reliable price during the term of heat generation contract. The Jordan Hotel will bear no maintenance costs throughout the term of the contract, simply paying for the fuel that they use (plus a negotiated price per heat unit). Alodyne owns and is responsible for the equipment.
Key benefits of the installation included
Energy efficiency, dependability and longevity. Ultimately, the Jordan Hotel had the peace of mind of knowing that Alodyne is always monitoring their energy plant.
Alodyne chose to work with Viessmann on the project as they have a strong reputation internationally, and have a widely available selection of equipment. As efficiency, reliability, and strong customer service are mandatory in our business, we felt that Viessmann was up to the task of delivering on these three key components.
Alodyne found that the Viessmann VD2-950 was the best solution for the Jordan Hotel, because of its compact size, top-class efficiency, high turndown ratio, and superior performance and reliability. Alodyne was able to offer a smooth installation and commissioning to bring the project online mid-winter, during one of the busiest months of the year for Sunday River.
Viessmann was able to offer an improved solution for Phase II, that was not previously available. The CA3-4.0 high-mass condensing boiler, offers up to 4 MMBtu of heating capacity, low emissions, quiet operation, and a 15:1 modulation range. The larger water content extends burner run time and reduces cycling, for increased efficiency.
Installation DetailsIn Phase I, the Viessmann VD2-950 was installed as the centerpiece of a revised heating system, and operates as the lead boiler. It replaced one of four 4.6 MMBtu cast-iron boilers and is projected to meet more than 90% of the annual heat demand for the facility.
