Five-star UK resort to install CHP

A five-star resort in the UK is to install a combined heat and power (CHP) system from on-site utility company EuroSite Power.

The Celtic Manor resort complex in Newport, Wales, which hosted 2014’s NATO summit and 2010’s golf tournament the Ryder Cup, will power and heat its four hotels and extensive grounds with a 400 kW CHP system from Czech cogen equipment manufacturer Tedom.

The system will produce up to 2,174,960 kWe and 2,579,990 kWth per year, Eurosite Power said, while saving up to 751 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

Under the terms of a 15-year, à‚£4.1 million ($5.3 million) on-site utility agreement, EuroSite Power will own and maintain the CHP system and sell its power to Celtic Manor.

The contract is the second of its type to be funded by Societe Generale Equipment Finance after a project financing agreement with EuroSite Power announced in March.à‚
