Major Milestone for Centrica Business Solutions
Centrica Business Solutions has started production of its 3,000th ENER-G combined heat and power (CHP) unit.
Designed and delivered from the company’s global engineering and manufacturing base in Salford, Manchester, the 50kWe low NOx CHP plant has been developed for Woodford Heating to provide low carbon heat and power to 150 new apartments in Carmen Street, East London.
By capturing and using the heat that is normally wasted in conventional power generation, the CHP system will achieve 90 per cent efficiency, helping the site to keep its carbon footprint and energy costs down.
Ian Hopkins, UK & Ireland Sales Director for Centrica Business Solutions said: “We are immensely proud to design and manufacture high quality CHP systems in the UK. The economic feasibility of gas-fired CHP systems is currently very compelling and we are unique in providing a UK manufactured product and UK-based lifetime service offering.
“I would like to congratulate our entire Salford team for their commitment to the efficient production of our highly-engineered CHP systems and achieving this 3,000-unit milestone."
