This reputation for high quality is built upon the technology within each of our boilers that we sell here in Ireland. People have learned about the stainless steel heat exchanger, the Saturn Smart controller as well as the downward firing burner – something that is different to other condensing oil boiler technologies in the Irish market. What a lot of homeowners, plumbers and merchants don’t know as much about, is where exactly this technology has come from.
Introducing, KD Navien, our Korean manufacturer. A true, global leader in the world of boiler technology. KyungDong Navien (KD Navien) was founded in 1978 and has spent much of the last 40 years researching, developing and delivering cutting edge boiler advancements. A quick look at some of the timeline of these achievements show some important developments in relation to how we’ve ended up with the Saturn oil boiler and its effect on the Irish oil boiler market:
1988: KD Navien became the first Asian company to develop and produce a highly efficient, environmentally friendly condensing boiler.
1982: KD Navien acquired the Korea Standard Certificate for oil fired domestic water heaters.
1988: For their oil boiler technology, they acquired the European CE Certificate for oil boilers.
2002: KD Navien managed to develop Asia’s first condensing oil boiler at their Korean R&D facility and
2007: KD Navien acquired the European quality certification CE Mark for condensing oil boilers.
This constant progression has led to the large export network around the world for KD Navien and Saturn Oil Boilers is a part of the world’s bestselling boiler brand. The Saturn NHC range is just one appliance of many that includes the impressive stainless steel heat exchanger.
They patented and introduced the use of stainless steel heat exchangers for the first time in the world. Achieved the world’s highest heat efficiency of 98.8%, on their gas boiler range, allowing KD Navien to be a change leader for boiler standards.

KD Navien is set to take another leap as they aim to become the world’s top energy equipment manufacturer by 2020 and this further shows the company’s commitment to growing their global reputation for quality.
