This project involved replacing the original 1960s boiler plant with new, much more energy efficient plant. We will upgrade and modify the existing pipework, water treatment and pressurisation systems to improve output delivery.
- All internal - no external changes needed.
- Will provide campus with more hot water that's generated efficiently.
- Boiler thermal capacity being increase to 15MW delivered via three 5 MW units.
The upgrades involve high-efficiency boilers, complete with heat recovery on the flue gases. The water treatment involves a filtration system which removes the use of chemicals.
