Human genome research to run on CHP

One of the worldࢀ™s largest medical funding charities is to run its human genome research campus on combined heat and power.

Hinxton Hall Ltd, which runs the human genome research and conference campus of the UKࢀ™s Wellcome Trust charity, is to install a 2 MWe CHP unit from energy services company Dalkia.

The CHP system will also contain an absorption chiller, an ancillary plant and a cooling tower. Dalkia will operate and maintain the system.

The human genome campus hosts research, conferences, seminars and training, creating a significant demand for power across the site. A reliable and stable power supply is vital to support support the delicate processes being undertaken in the research laboratories.
