Energy Centre at the L&D

CGI of Energy CentreThe L&D has been building a state-of-the-art Energy Centre on the hospital site.

This exciting Energy Centre project will replace all obsolete and out of date heating plant and equipment, making the L&D one of the most environmentally friendly hospitals in the country.

We will be reducing our carbon emissions by approximately 35% once it is up and running.

Benefits of the new Energy Centre

  • Replace existing boiler plant and chimneys with a centralised plant that is more efficient and will be sufficient to serve the whole hospital site.
  • Increased resilience across the hospital site because old boilers will be replaced. The scheme will deliver a substitutional reduction in energy consumption.
  • Significant reduction in the risk of plant and infrastructure failures.

Progress so far

  • Building structure fully complete
  • 3 x high voltage generators installed and undergoing final test/commissioning
  • 4 x high efficient boilers installed and supplying heat into a new site wide piped low temperature hot water (LTHW) system
  • Rolling programme of equipment replacement within satellite plant rooms with LTHW supplied via the Energy Centre boilers.
  • Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit undergoing commissioning/harmonisation activity

The project is due for completion in late 2023.
