ECOTURBINO saving calculator for hotels

Saving water and reduce energy costs has become an important topic for many hotels. The big challenge is to keep the comfort for the guests high. Especially in the shower the water consumption is above average. There are already a large number of water reducers for the shower, but these usually lead to lower water jet pressure and so to a massive loss of shower comfort.

The Rabmer Group offers – with the Austrian invention ECOTURBINO – a simple and efficient solution: hotels can save more than a third of water and energy costs while showering, protect the environment and at the same time keep the comfort high for the guests. “With the patented technology, air is sucked through a small opening and mixed with water. The shower jet is almost as strong with lower water consumption as before and the hotel guests notice no difference. With this small “turbine”, which can also be retrofitted easily, the hot water and energy consumption is reduced by one third. For a business hotel with 100 rooms this means an annual saving of around EUR 12,000 (water, energy costs, waste water charges) and a payback period of about 6 months, “explains Mag. Ulrike Rabmer-Koller, Managing Director of the Rabmer Group. The ECOTURBINO has been tested by TÜV Austria, awarded the Austrian Ecolabel and the Energy Globe Award OÖ.

In order to be able to calculate the corresponding savings potential concretely and individually, there is the ECOTURBINO saving calculator on our website. The calculation basis of the savings calculator was certified by TÜV Austria based on the Austrian Energy Efficiency Act.

Our example shows the calculation for a hotel in Vienna with 100 showers with a capacity of 85%. With a one-off purchase cost of € 4 575, there is an annual savings potential of € 12 000 in operating costs and 2 100 m³ of water, 86 000 kWh = 310 GJ of energy and 28 000 kg of CO2! This does not take into account the potential proceeds from the sale of the measure under the EEffG to your energy supplier.
