Van der Valk Hotel

Mons, Belgium

bg-image

Van der Valk is an international hospitality chain operating nearly 100 hotels in Europe and North America. It was Van der Valk's business hotel in Mons, Belgium that was looking for a total climate solution, and we were prepared to deliver a fully integrated system to provide more energy efficiency, reliability, control and comfort.

An integrated approach with a single point of contact

From the lobby to the guest rooms to the kitchen, every space in the Van der Valk Hotel has its own unique climate needs. Our goal was to develop an integrated system to meet the needs of each of these locations and lower the total environmental impact of the system.

The owner of the Van der Valk Mons hotel also requested combining ground source and standard air source heat pumps. With our wide range of units, we could easily install both systems with one central control.

"We were happy to meet the green key objectives set out by the Van der Valk Hotel. We successfully delivered a solution that consumes less energy but offers greater comfort and reliability with a single point of contact."

- Lieven Verstaen, VRV Product Manager of Daikin Belgium
