Our story

by Viper Innovations

Based in Portishead, Viper Innovations is an electrical engineering consultancy that develops products and provides services to infrastructural industries such as subsea and rail. The company has used grant funding to upgrade and split the air conditioning system into two separate circuits with separate controls and outdoor units, resulting in greater control and reduction in demand. Furthermore, solar film has been fitted to the existing windows to reduce solar gain and overheating risk. This in turn reduces demand on the air conditioning and improves staff comfort levels.

The project cost £28,000, and the grant awarded was worth £11,210.
