CooperOstlund agrees CHP retrofit project with Anglian
CooperOstlund has announced a new supply agreement with Anglian Water that will see state-of-the-art control panels retrofitted to five combined heat and power (CHP) systems at sites in Basildon, Whitlingham, Colchester and Great Billing.
With two panels already installed, the remaining units will be fitted by CooperOstlund’s field service team over the coming weeks.
Allowing engineers to easily control each set-up without the need for specialist support, the panels will provide immediate digital access.
CooperOstlund, which provides gas engine design, installation and maintenance services for customers worldwide, plans to minimise engine downtime through a focus on off-site pre-build, which will result in quicker installation times, while internet connectivity will reduce the need to visit site, reducing cost and improving uptime.
Graham Powell, CHP manager at Anglian Water Services, said: “We needed an open protocol control panel solution, consistent across our UK CHP portfolio, to improve engineer access and provide system flexibility. As part of a competitive tender, CooperOstlund presented the ideal solution – delivering precisely against our requirements, while offering the added benefits of fast installation and minimal maintenance.
“The CooperOstlund team has already demonstrated its speed, expertise and capability through the installation of the first two units. We’re confident that the full project will be completed on time and to the highest quality standards.”
Stuart Cooper, director at CooperOstlund, added: “As the official UK distributor for the Storm Energy Management System (SEM), we have considerable experience in delivering retrofit products for a wide variety of CHP systems. In the case of Anglian Water, a mix of MWM and Jenbacher sets posed the requirement for a widely compatible control solution, uniform across multiple sites.
“Unlike our competitors, we are completely independent. This means that each of our engineers are fully qualified to specify, install, commission and maintain a wide variety of engine types from the world’s leading OEMs [original equipment manufacturers]. Our offering is therefore impartial and ensures clients receive the most appropriate solution for their site requirements.
“We are delighted to be working closely with Anglian Water and look forward to completing the project.”
