Edina UK Ltd, the UK and Ireland’s leading total solutions provider for combined heat and power (CHP), gas and diesel power generation is extremely proud and honoured to announce that it has been awarded the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, Innovation category award for the second time in four years – the first for any company of its kind.
Established in 1966, the Queen’s Award for Enterprise programme is the highest official UK awards for British businesses celebrating outstanding achievement within International Trade, Innovation, Sustainable Development and Promoting Opportunity through social mobility.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise was awarded based upon Edina’s technical approach and innovation to the total project management of power generation solutions. Edina delivers the total power solution in-house which includes; design, engineering, project management, commissioning and, service and maintenance of CHP, gas and diesel power plants.
From initial contact, Edina provides a high level assessment of the profitability and efficiency of the power generation project. Once realised, site inspections are carried out to assess the on-site infrastructure, identifying potential challenges and constraints ahead of the design specification, mitigating unnecessary costs and potential risks.
3D CAD modelling assists and visualises the final product and also evaluates the designs throughout the project phase. Edina’s Building Information Modelling initiative improves the collaboration of services to improve efficiency of operation, reducing waste and associated costs.
Edina’s engineering, project management and commissioning teams ensure seamless integration to site infrastructure realising the strategic objectives of the power generation project whilst maximising the return on client investment.
Once the site is operational and producing power, Edina’s Service and Maintenance teams manage the performance, efficiency and availability of the generating set 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Through advanced real-time remote monitoring telematics and system management efficiencies, Edina’s call desk engineers can diagnose engine faults instantaneously, reducing costs to customers and maintaining security of power supply at site.
Since winning its first Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in Innovation, 2014, Edina has won multiple awards within the Association of Decentralised Energy and Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association industry bodies and recently celebrated over 500MW of electrical installed gas capacity within the UK and Ireland.
Edina has been privileged to support a number of high profile clients, such as; E.ON, Thames Water, Arla Foods, Biffa Waste Management, Queen’s University Belfast, Bausch + Lomb, the NHS Trust, and Gateshead Council to deliver energy and carbon efficiencies. Edina is currently working with BAE Systems Portsmouth Naval Base and many others to adopt energy efficient technology.
