CHP for proton beam therapy centre

The latest combined heat and power technology from Veolia will power the first NHS high energy Proton Beam Therapy Centre for specialist cancer treatment, at The Christie, in Manchester, which is due to start treating oncology patients in 2018.

By using cogeneration for its essential electricity and heating needs, the hospital will further reduce its carbon emissions and secure cost savings that can be redirected to patient care. The new CHP will deliver secure annual on-site generation of 2,100 GWh of electricity and 3,200 GWh of heat, saving around 380 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Part of the new packaged CHP range from Veolia, the 240 kWe unit uses a three-way catalyst to reduce NOx emissions and protect local air quality. 

Gavin Graveson, Veolia’s COO, Public and Commercial, said, “Recent estimates show CHP and energy efficiency in the NHS contributed to energy savings of £25 million over the last year. CHP represents good engineering, good economics, and good value for money for the NHS.”
