Stoke Hospital ‘delivers on green ambition’

The Royal Stoke University Hospital, part of University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust, has installed a high efficiency ENER-G CHP system to improve its environmental performance and reduce energy costs.

ENER-G successfully tendered to replace the hospital’s existing Deutuz 1280 kW CHP with a new, highly efficient ENERG 1.2 MW unit. After decommissioning and disassembling the existing unit and reorganising the plant room, ENER-G installed the new cogeneration system, which benefited from NHS Energy Efficiency Capital Funding. 

ENER-G is supplying a full CHP operation and maintenance package, including 24-hour remote monitoring, and all-inclusive parts and labour required to rectify faults or repairs for the contract term.

Charlie Cox, energy manager for the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust, said: “Being able to generate our own power locally on site means there is a lot less energy wasted through transmission and distribution.”

The ENER-G CHP engine is reducing the general hospital’s CO2 emissions by approximately 2,792 tonnes per year – almost 8% of the Trust’s carbon footprint. The Trust’s annual energy costs are also expected to be reduced by over £400,000 within five years.
