London landmark plan features CHP

Redevelopment of the iconic Chelsea Barracks (pictured) in west London, UK will feature a ground water source heating and cooling system.

Carbon Zero Consulting has been appointed to work on the project, alongside ground source heat company IFTech Ltd.

Chelsea Barracks, a 5.2 ha former military site in the city of Westminster, is undergoing major redevelopment over the next three years to include residential, retail, health and leisure facilities.

As part of the project, an open loop aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) system designed by IFTech will be installed in different phases to provide heating and cooling. This system, which will be one of the UK’s largest, will comprise five borehole ‘doublets’ in the underlying chalk aquifer with a total groundwater flow rate of over 150 cubic metres per hour.  

John Findlay, Managing Director of Carbon Zero Consulting, said: ‘It is quite rare in our line of work, to have the privilege to work on not only one of the UK’s most prestigious redevelopments, but also one of the largest installations of heating and cooling systems in the UK – very exciting indeed.’
