Hotel H4 in the Borussia park

Mönchengladbach, Germany

WOLF ventilation units guarantee a hygienic room climate in the hotel kitchen

Opened in January 2019, the H4 Hotel Mönchengladbach in the BORUSSIA park, with its location directly at the stadium, offers the best conditions for fans of the Bundesliga club and other stadium visitors. Catering in the hotel is also intended to be a special experience. In order to ensure that the applicable regulations and a hygienic working atmosphere are observed when preparing meals, the WOLF ventilation units AHU TE EC were installed in the new hotel building in August 2018 to ventilate the main kitchen and scullery. The high-quality units can be dimensioned variably and are modularly designed, thus considerably facilitating planning and installation. They also help to maintain the high hygiene standards for kitchens and even save energy thanks to efficient EC fans. The hygiene units are certified according to Eurovent.

A hotel that not only makes the hearts of football fans beat faster

In the H4 Hotel Mönchengladbach in the BORUSSIA park, football accompanies guests all the way to their rooms. Six suites and 125 rooms in modern and imaginatively sporty design are available. Those who stay overnight here can also take advantage of the direct connection to the stadium and the gastronomic offers. After all, fans naturally need to be well-fortified to be able to cheer on their team with all their might. As outstanding as the Bundesliga team Borussia Mönchengladbach is currently playing, all the food prepared should always be first class. The chefs in the restaurants are responsible for this. Football coaches know that the environment is very important for the players' top performances. For this reason, those responsible also had high demands on the ventilation equipment to be installed in the kitchens in order to create optimal working conditions for the cooking staff. Due to the strict hygiene regulations, the intensive kitchen operation and the limited space available, the products used must be specially manufactured, have a very flexible design and of course be very efficient. For such projects, the executive planner Frank Friedrichs, project manager at Feies Planungsgesellschaft, has known the indoor climate expert WOLF for a long time and was therefore the first point of contact in this case as well. From planning to completion, the system provider worked hand in hand with the planner and later the installer during installation and commissioning.

Ventilation units like a "tailor-made suit"

After a detailed coordination of all parties involved in the run-up, all WOLF air conditioners were planned and manufactured tailor-made in terms of size and function, taking into account the available space. They thus meet the highest demands on space utilization and technology. The modern, dismountable construction of the built-in AHU-TE facilitates installation and maintenance considerably. Thus the ventilation units could be easily transported in several transport units to the hotel and assembled there. The WOLF ventilation unit AHU TE EC 210 with 11,000 m³/h aerates and vents the main kitchen, while the AHU TE EC 170 with 8,400 m³/h including heating register is used in the scullery. For even greater ease of operation, those responsible can control the hygienic ventilation units with a central WOLF control system. Modern EC fans with infinitely variable control of the air flow rates not only guarantee constantly optimised operation, but also energy savings of up to 30 percent compared to conventional fans. Added to this is the effective heat recovery through plate heat exchangers with very high efficiency. In addition to its location advantage in BORUSSIA-PARK, its attractive architecture and the appealing interior, the H4 Hotel also benefits from lower operating costs, thanks to the efficient kitchen ventilation technology, among other things.
