Vital Energi has won a contract from developer the Ardmore Group to supply an energy centre for a £170m ($216m) mixed-use residential-commercial development in London.
Plans for phase one of the Wandsworth Ram Brewery redevelopment, undertaken by Chinese investment firm Greenland Group, include 338 flats integrated with shops, restaurants and cafes, a microbrewery and a heritage centre to celebrate the site’s 500-year history as a brewing site.
Under the terms of the contract, Vital Energi will provide and install a low-carbon energy centre which will feaure two 229 kW combined heat and power (CHP) engines, two 25,000-litre heat storage units, four 963 kW boilers and two 1 MW chillers. There will also be the capability to add a fifth boiler, Vital said.
Rob Callaghan, Vital Energi’s regional director, said: “This is a development which is rich in heritage and history and we are delighted to be delivering a 21st century low-carbon energy solution. This project also marks the sixth time we have partnered with Ardmore and we are happy to be continuing our relationship on another great project.”
