Low-carbon heat-pump maker Likido has chosen technology from Edinburgh-based Vert Technologies to power its new facility (www.vertrotors.com
Founded in Fife in 2017, Likido was set up by a group of engineers who wanted to re-use the energy that is traditionally lost from industrial heating and cooling systems.
Its new facility will be used to build the LikidoONE, which was launched in 2018 and can reduce the energy consumed in industrial processes by more than 75%.
The company (www.likido.net
), which was taken over in December by US-based Dalrada Financial Corporation, has purchased two Vert A100 compressors from Vert to power its operations at Loanhead.
Unlike most traditional compressors, they have a 100% duty cycle, which means that thay can run continuously if required.
Being compact and portable, they can be easily moved from one location to another as the Likido facility grows. They also feature low levels of noise and vibration.
Stuart Cox, the chief executive of Likido, said: “Like ourselves, Vert is a young firm with cutting-edge technology and global ambitions.
“It is great to be able to support a fellow Scottish SME, but it was an easy decision, as Vert’s compressors are a perfect fit for what we are trying to achieve.”
