New combined heat and power (CHP) plant at the University of York provides the campus with low cost electricity and heat, reducing their reliance on the electricity grid whilst maintaining security of power.
Following an extensive tender process the contract was awarded to Edina. The full turn-key contract included the design, manufacture, supply, installation and commissioning of two MWM manufactured gas engines.
The two 1.6MWe reciprocating gas engines replaced the existing engines housed within the University’s existing energy centre on the Heslington West campus.
The MWM TCG 2020 V16 engines were chosen based on their market leading performance in achieving maximum efficiency, reliability, flexibility and environmental sustainability, as well as offering low lifecycle costs.
Both 1.6MWe engines were containerised in attenuated acoustic enclosures at Edina’s manufacturing facility in Lisburn, Northern Ireland and positioned within the new energy centre to further reduce installation time and expedite site works.
To accompany the two CHP plants, an 850kW biomass boiler was installed on a separate site close to the Heslington East campus car park. It is understood that the biomass boiler will contribute around 7,000,000 kW/hr of thermal energy to the overall University demand per year and is capable of operating on both woodchip and wood pellet fuel types which can be locally-sourced.
