Edina delivers its third University of York CHP plant

Jun 21, 2022

Edina, a recognised on-site power generation and energy storage solution provider has delivered its third Combined Heat and Power (CHP) project at the University of York, a leading educational institution.

The latest CHP plant comprises a 2.3MWe MWM TCG 3020 V20 gas engine and associated equipment and joins two existing CHP plants rated 1.56MWe each also engineered, installed, and maintained by Edina.

The additional CHP plant is part of on-going energy-efficiency measures to manage energy costs, improve sustainability, and on-site energy resilience for the University.
NG Bailey, a leading independent engineering, and services business awarded Edina the contract to design, engineer, and install the CHP plant.

The 2.3MWe CHP plant is containerised within an attenuated acoustic enclosure engineered at Edina’s in-house packaging facility and was recently delivered to site and positioned within a purpose-built energy centre situated on the University East Campus.


Adam Bloom, Head of Sales, Edina, said: "This project is unique in the way we created bespoke artwork around three sides of the container perimeter to visualise the internal components and workings of the CHP plant. This requirement forms part of an expansive learning initiative designed to engage the university students and staff on the energy-efficient technologies powering their campus and facilities whilst educating the university’s engineers of tomorrow.”

Edina will commission the CHP plant in late 2002, and once operational, Edina will provide long-term asset-care coverage to ensure plant operation, energy security and availability.

The University’s latest CHP plant accompanies the sites existing two CHP plants to provide the University with a total power output of 5.4MW electrical capacity.

What is CHP?

CHP is the cogeneration of heat and electricity from a single fuel and is a highly efficient form of energy conversion using gas engines. Combined Heat and Power can save up to 30% on primary energy costs when compared to the separate purchase of electricity from the electricity grid and gas for use in on-site boilers.
