British confectionery manufacturer Tangerine is installing CHP systems at its Pontefract production facility in West Yorkshire, which are set to achieve energy savings via cogeneration and trigeneration technologies from ENER-G.
 
The two-phase involved the installation of an ENER-G 500 kWe cogeneration unit in September 2010, followed by a 230 kWe trigeneration system to be commissioned in this February.
 
The smaller unit will provide electricity, heating and cooling to supply a second production facility. Each year, Tangerine should achieve cost savings of almost £200,000 (US$320,235).
 
Tangerine has utilised ENER-G’s ‘discount energy purchase’ scheme, which entails no capital outlay for the business. The contract is structured to deliver low-cost, low carbon energy on-site, thus reducing the facility’s carbon footprint whilst improving profitability.
 
UK-based ENER-G, a sustainable engineering group, is also working with Tangerine to develop CHP solutions on a number of other sites.
