Combined Heat & Power Unit
Leeds City Council identified a need for improved leisure facilities within its area. To better meet these needs it commissioned the building of a new £28M leisure centre “Holt Park Active”. This modern and spacious activity centre encompasses many energy efficiency measures including a Combined Heat & Power unit in its own pre-built plantroom.
Contractor M&E: Interserve
Design consultants: Hoarelea
The client needed a fully packaged unit ready to be installed with a minimum of work, whilst reducing the capital outlay. The unit will be connected directly to the building heating system via an underground heating network.
Solution and Outcome
Helec built a fully packaged 20 kW chp, thermal stores and control system into a converted 20ft shipping container. The unit was installed within one week and is now fully operational.
