Low-carbon heat pump maker Likido has purchased two of the A100 compressors from Vert Technologies to power its operations at Loanhead near Edinburgh, Scotland.
Founded in Fife, Scotland, in 2017, Likido was set up by a group of engineers who wanted to reduce and reuse the energy that is traditionally squandered from industrial heating and cooling systems. Likido was taken over in December 2019 by US-based Dalrada Financial Corporation in a cash and share deal. 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%.
Unlike most traditional compressors, the Vert A100 has a 100% duty cycle, meaning that it can run continuously if required. The compact, portable units also provide flexibility as they can be easily moved from one location to another as the Likido facility grows.
Vert’s patented Conical Rotary Compressor (CRC) technology lies at the core of its powerful compressors, which produce high pressure air without compromising on noise levels for the operator.
Founded in 2013, Vert employs 14 people at its Manufacturing and Design centre on the southern edge of Edinburgh. Its technology has won multiple awards since the first working prototype was produced in 2014 and led to the company securing a prestigious government grant in 2019 from the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
Vert is currently accelerating commercial sales of its compressor units, powered by its patented CRC technology.
