The project

Salford HospitalThe Christie at Salford Royal is part of a unique network of Christie radiotherapy centres and has been created so that local cancer patients from Salford, Bolton and Wigan can access first class radiotherapy treatment closer to home.

The Challenge

The extremely high energy demands of this building meant that, to comply with mandatory building regulations, a highly energy efficient means of producing heat and power was required to supply site demand.

Summary of site demand

Annual electricity demand…………………………………………430,578 kWh
Electricity price for 88% of site electricity consumption…11.5667 p/kWh
Electricity price for 12% of site electricity consumption…10.3362 p/kWh
Heat demand………………………………………………………….186,071 kWh
Gas consumption…………………………………………………….232,589 kWh
Gas price for 88% of site gas consumption…………………..3.1208 p/kWh
Gas price for 12% of site gas consumption…………………..2.7888 p/kWh

The solution

Supplied and installed one 15kWe/ 30kWth LoadTracker CHP units able to supplying 92% of site heating and hot water demand and 20% of electrical demand.

Features:

  • case-study-gun-wharf-image6Modular Unit Design for flexibility of install
  • Automatic modulation (same as before)
  • Long services periods (same as before)
  • Noise levels of 49db comparable to low level office noise

Benefits

  • Carbon Footprint Savings
  • Cost Savings

Carbon footprint savings

30 tonnes of CO2 emissions could be reduced by installing a CHP system relative to a conventional mains supply/ gas boiler system.
This is an equivalent 10% reduction of CO2 emissions.

Cost Savings

The use of LoadTracker CHP would result in annual savings of £6,941 relative to a conventional mains supply/ boiler system.
This is equivalent to saving 12% on energy bills.
