UK consultant and building designer Atkins is celebrating the installation of wind turbine blades onto the Bahrain World Trade Center. The three 29-metre diameter turbine blades are supported by three bridges each weighing 65 tonnes and positioned between the development’s two 50-storey, 240-metre-tall office towers. Their installation is the culmination of over three years’ intensive research and development by Atkins’ architects and engineers.

A UK hospital is to benefit from a new 1.4 MWe CHP and cooling (trigeneration) system, to be supplied to Kingston Hospital NHS Trust under a 15-year ‘private finance initiative’ (PFI) agreement backed by an energy management contract, which will avoid the emission of around 4000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per year.
