Smithfield Market CHP Installation

M&E to a 16MW CHP system proving electricity, chilled water and LTHW for Smithfield market and other central London clients. Value circa £6.3M for the M,E&Controls excluding the CHP’S and the Thermal Store and Flues.

M&E Design

The project involved the replanting of the existing CHP system run by Eon that supplied electricity to the grid and LPCW and LPHW via 400mm mains into a 12kM existing District Heating and Cooling system.

The whole of the plant was removed and replaced with the 4-off 4MW CHP’S that supplied MPHW at 118C initially, with two 5MW absorption chillers to supply chilled water at 6/12C.  Works also included the refurb of 3 large gas-fired boilers as back-up, a 330,000ltr Thermal Store, 90,000ltr CW storage tanks and evaporative condensers.
