MITIE is working with the University of Bristol to installl combined heat and power (CHP) plants. The first unit installed is powered by amn 8 cylinder 30-litre gas fired enginer which produces 00kW of power, fed through to the main switchboard of one of the faculties. This provides 500kW of heat towards the heating requirements of this building. A second unit is powered by a 60-litre V16 gas fired enginer and produces 1,160kW of power. This CHP unit is connected to the unversity’s district heating system, serving four boiler rooms. In each boiler room, a heat exchanger transfers the heat to the heating system in their respective buildings. In total, both units will generate around 1.6MW of electricity for the campus.
