New CHP plant for Sutton hospital

A new combined heat and power (CHP) plant is being installed at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton, near London.

The energy centre is expected to save the hospital more than £600,000 ($980,000) and almost halve carbon emissions every year, equivalent to 3655 tonnes of CO2. The plant, to be developed and operated by MITIE’s Asset Management business, uses a gas engine to generate heat and power, reducing the need to buy energy from the grid and replacing the hospital’s existing steam energy system.

The new plant, which will be installed by summer 2012, will also produce excess energy that could be used to supply neighbouring amenities on the hospital site.

MITIE has recently been accepted as a partner in the National Health Service (NHS) Carbon and Energy Fund, which enables hospital trusts to upgrade their energy infrastructure by providing funding, legal and technical services.

MITIE is already working with the Royal Free hospital in Hampstead to improve its energy provision.
