Green CHP for UK dairy products facility

UK dairy products company Adams Foods is achieving impressive carbon savings at its new factory in Staffordshire, thanks to CHP technology supplied by sustainable power group ENER-G, which has installed a 150 kW CHP unit as part of an environmental management programme.
The ENER-G CHP system generates 150 kW of electricity and provides 225 kW of heat to pre-heat water for washing and cleaning.
Adams Foods, which was formed when The Kerrygold Company merged with North Downs Dairy in October 2010, is the UK's leading pre-packed cheese business, with a 30% share of the UK retail market.
The state-of-the-art factory and office complex, in Leek, was designed to be the most efficient and environmentally friendly packing facility in Europe. The new facility employs 550 people and operates 24 hours a day.
The CHP unit was acquired using ENER-G’s capital purchase scheme and features an ENER-G Premier maintenance contract that includes all services and call outs.
Adams Foods has also implemented a number of other energy saving techniques to reduce costs and lower carbon emissions.
These include sun pipes, passive infra red lighting controls, photovoltaic cells and free cooling to the production hall using roof mounted air fans and inverter driven motors on pumps and fans.
