Vital Energi has landed a £5.6m deal to supply, install and commission the energy centre and primary distribution for Berkeley Group subsidiary St William Homes’ development at Battersea.

The deal will see them provide the combined heat and power solution for 955 apartments over 12 blocks, along with low temperature hot water and chilled water systems.

Vital Energi will be completing the co-ordination of a design by environmental engineers Max Fordham, with the basement energy centre including a combined heat and power engine, two 1300kw gas boilers, and four 550kw chillers.

The development at Prince of Wales Drive is adjacent to the Battersea Power Station and is one of the first projects to be delivered by St William, a joint venture between Berkeley Group and National Grid.

Rob Callaghan, Regional Director London, from Vital Energi, said: “We are excited to be working with the Berkeley Group again on an exciting new venture, and to be part of this fantastic project that will see further regeneration to the area.

“Prince of Wales Drive will be a beautiful development, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide the energy solution for the project.”

Vital Energi are no strangers to the Berkeley Group, having worked with the developers on 16 other projects and holding a relationship that spans back to 2006 when work began at the Royal Arsenal, Riverside development.
