Two new London housing developments are set to benefit from combined heat and power technology.
Included are an underground CHP energy centre on the Hendon Waterside development, connecting 358 dwellings and an £8 million contract at Nine Elms Point, benefiting a further 645 homes.
Vital Energi has come together with developer, Barratt London, to deliver the energy centres to provide electricity, heating and hot water at the sites.
Vital’s Regional Director, Rob Callaghan commented, “If we want a low-carbon London then developments like these are going to play a key part in reaching that goal and it is fantastic to see a company like Barratt London who are committed to building homes with sustainability at their heart.”
The Nine Elms area of London is one of the largest regeneration schemes in Europe, stretching three kilometres along the South side of the Thames and will eventually see over 16,000 new homes built.
Included in that installation are the main Energy Centre, Chiller Plant Room and Heat Substations, in addition to all the works to residential and commercial properties, including Hydraulic Interface Units, Cooling Interface Units and Heat Meters in a contract worth £8 million.
Meanwhile at Hendon Waterside, a flagship regeneration development set within 170 hectares of beautiful green surroundings, Vital are installing the underground energy centre which will include a Combined Heat and Power engine, two 3.7m thermal stores, an expansion tanks and two 3,400kW boilers.
