Product:
West Bridge Mill, Kirkcaldy

Consultant: The Keenan Consultancy

The Project

Social Housing re-development project of a ‘B’ listed former rope mill into a multi dwelling property consisting of 16 separate flats designed to house vulnerable young people.

The Challenge

As an award winning Eco development, providing an energy efficient, low emissions heating/ hot water system that would help reduce fuel costs and keep them down was essential.

Summary of site demand

Annual electricity demand……………………………………………172,368 kWh
Electricity day tariff……………………………………………………..16.32 p/kWh
Electricity night tariff – 7h…………………………………………….13.19 p/kWh
Heating and DHW demand……………………………………………328,482 kWh
Gas price……………………………………………………………………..3.84 p/kWh

The solution

Supplied and installed one 15kWe/ 30kWth LoadTracker CHP unit able to supplying 69% of site heating and hot water and 66% of electrical demand.

Features

  • Modular Unit Design for flexibility of installation.
  • LoadTracker automatically modulates electrical output, which minimizes unnecessary grid electricity consumption.
  • Noise levels of 49dB comparable to low level office noise
  • Long service intervals (8,000 hours or 2 years).

Benefits

  • Consumption & Production
  • Carbon Footprint Savings
  • Cost Savings

Consumption & Production

Consumption & Production

Carbon Footprint Savings

36 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 21% reduction of CO2 emissions

Carbon Footprint Savings

Cost Savings

The use of LoadTracker CHP would result in annual savings of £11,924 relative to a conventional mains supply/ boiler system.

This is equivalent to saving 28% on energy bills.
