Bowman heat exchangers are playing an important role in the success of a flagship hotel on the Black Sea coast in Georgia.
The Paragraph Resort & Spa Hotel is located in Shekvetili, Georgia, and is part of the Autograph Collection of Marriott hotels.
Opened in 2018, this five-star hotel is widely recognised for its high standards and the range of recreational facilities provided within the hotel campus.
With its Black Sea location, water-based recreation is a major part of the hotel’s offering and the jewel in the hotel’s crown is undoubtedly the 115-metre-long outdoor saltwater swimming pool.
Built into a part covered, panoramic deck, the pool not only extends out over the Black Sea, but uses filtered sea water, which is heated via Bowman heat exchangers.
The pool is a focal point for a range of swimming and water-based activities and combines the health benefits of Black Sea minerals, with an all year round aqua environment.
Moving indoors, the water leisure facilities include an indoor water park with 8 water slides, a spa and wellness pool, plus another indoor swimming pool.
Pool water is heated via Bowman FG160-5115-5T titanium heat exchangers, which were specified by installers Pool and Spa of Tbilisi, for their energy efficiency and excellent heat transfer performance. Suitable for pools up to 320 m³, they transfer up to 300 kW of heat energy when supplied with 82 °C temperature water from a boiler heat source.
Since installation, the heat exchangers have proved to be both efficient and reliable, their high quality materials handling the natural minerals found in Black Sea salt water!
Commenting on the installation, Bowman sales manager, Tony Carter said, “Bowman heat exchangers have had a long and successful association with many of Eastern Europe’s swimming pool markets, where heat transfer performance and reliability are important in these often colder climates, so we are delighted that the Paragraph Resort & Spa Hotel chose Bowman for their flagship resort destination”.
