CHP energy savings for UK confectionery manufacturer

British confectionery manufacturer Tangerine is installing CHP systems at its Pontefract production facility in West Yorkshire, which are set to achieve energy savings via cogeneration and trigeneration technologies from ENER-G.
 
The two-phase involved the installation of an ENER-G 500 kWe cogeneration unit in September 2010, followed by a 230 kWe trigeneration system to be commissioned in this February.
 
The smaller unit will provide electricity, heating and cooling to supply a second production facility. Each year, Tangerine should achieve cost savings of almost £200,000 (US$320,235).
 
Tangerine has utilised ENER-G’s ‘discount energy purchase’ scheme, which entails no capital outlay for the business. The contract is structured to deliver low-cost, low carbon energy on-site, thus reducing the facility’s carbon footprint whilst improving profitability.
 
UK-based ENER-G, a sustainable engineering group, is also working with Tangerine to develop CHP solutions on a number of other sites.
