Rolf Bartel's November 2016 Visit Rolf Bartel Stage 3

One of Summer 2016 Projects was Stage 3 of the Energy Project. It consisted of modernizing the central heating systems of BBH5, 6 and 7 (Boarding Homes of Vocational Boys).

Mr. Bartel kindly prepared the plan which was executed by Mr. Joseph Naim and his team. It was necessary for Mr. Bartel to come from Germany to inspect the implementation of the project and make the final adjustments. He visited Schneller School from 13 to 20 November 2016.

Mr. Bartel worked tirelessly until he got the new system running efficiently. He also inspected the systems of stages one and two which were installed the last two years, and directed Joseph Naim and his team to make all the necessary adjustments.

JLSS now has modern efficient systems in all the boys boarding homes.

The EVS Foundation is funding this very important project which provides better heating and saves enormous amounts on diesel bills.

The huge savings are the result of modernizing the systems and incorporating solar water-heating-Rolf Bartel's November 2016 Visitpanels into the new energy systems. The new systems are controlled by intelligent control units, that divert energy during the day to domestic hot-water tanks and hot-water-storage tanks through various stages that utilize energy to maximum efficiency.

The savings are also the result of using a reduced number of boilers (almost half) and new efficient ones instead of old boilers that waste huge amounts of diesel and energy.

The building housing the girls boarding homes, the main kitchen building, and the vocational workshops still need their heating systems to be upgraded the coming few years.

It is our hope that the EVS Foundation will continue to fund this very important project.

We express our sincere gratitude to the EVS Foundation and Mr. Rolf Bartel for this additional achievement in JLSS.
