Malmesbury Activity Zone is operated by DC Leisure Management Ltd working in partnership with Wiltshire Council. This is a multi facility centre comprising of gym, sports hall, squash court, therapy centre and swimming pool. Helec were invited to tender to supply a containerised 70 kWe CHP unit including 10 year maintenance package for the leisure centre.

Challenge

The council were seeking to have a more efficient system and save carbon, but there was insufficient space for the new plant so installing a containerised unit outside the plant room was the sensible solution.

Solution and Outcome

Working closely with both the consultant and the Council a suitable location was highlighted. The project took approximately 4 months to complete. The unit is now running and making savings for the client. The system is remotely monitored and managed by Helec.
