Heat recovery for Canadian hospital CHP

A heat recovery system is to be installed in a hospital’s boiler and combined heat and power (CHP) plant under the terms of a deal with Canadian firm Thermal Energy International Inc.

The company, based in Ottawa, Ontario, secured the order worth $965,000 while the heat recovery system is expected to provide the hospital with an estimated $366,000 in additional annual savings, resulting in a payback period of approximately 2.6 years.

William Crossland, CEO of Thermal Energy, commented: ‘The heat recovery system to be installed will recover the energy from the waste heat generated in the flue gases at the boilers and CHP unit.’

The waste heat will be used to generate hot water for use in domestic hot water and boiler make up. Along with steam traps previously installed, in total Thermal Energy products are expected to reduce the hospital's annual energy consumption by approximately 28%.
