Unilever: Specialist Industrial Manufacturer, Midlands, UK

 

The aim was to decrease costs whilst improving reliability and efficiency, including management of output emissions. As a high energy user due to the scale of the manufacturing facilities, it was important to our client that they increase operational profitability while also improving energy reliability for their 24/7 operation.

 

The engineering operations team contacted the team directly via recommendation they had received previously. They were looking at utilising a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system alongside cogeneration capacity to help reduce energy cost, hugely lower their carbon footprint whilst increasing their energy efficiency for operational resiliency.

 

Conducting a feasibility study of the premises and assessing in depth the operation specifications surrounding energy demand and carbon imprinting, the team suggested a mixture of combined heat and power, and ground mount solar energy generation.

 

The proposed energy supply solutions will cover approximately 90% of the site’s electrical demand, with the combined heat and power unit electrical output of 1MW and solar generation of 0.5MW. This specialist manufacturer can expect their energy costs to reduce by 22% over the next 15 years.

 

THE PROJECT IN NUMBERS:

Projected savings: 22% over 15-years with total energy costs reductions both gas and electric

Co2 savings per annum: 650.73 tonnes

Electrical power generation: 1.5 megawatt

Leeds Peak-Looping Power Plant, North UK

 

The project surrounded a peaking generation system to provide the national electricity grid with up to 20MW demand side energy. Having a grid connection secured, this allowed the project to succeed from conception to completion.

  

Following successful planning and procurement, this new power plant was in ready to progress and top-up energy into the grid during peak demand times. Also supporting the UKs low carbon energy infrastructure. Central to the project are the low emission gas engines to provide energy generation to supply a vast amount of homes with rapid start-up ensuring true grid resilience.

 

The project package included commissioning of the generators, control system, the switchgear and transformers. 

 

THE PROJECT IN NUMBERS:

Power generated:  11kV 

Number of natural gas peak-looping turbines: 10no. 2MW totalling 20MW

Power exported to the grid: 33kV

Tow Law Wind Turbine

pre-commencement planning, County Durham UK

 

This project followed engagement to review, support and manage the discharge of planning conditions and the enabling works package for the deployment of a new wind turbine farm.

  

Full completion and conclusion of the discharge of planning conditions with the design and following installation of all the new access roadways linking the various turbine construction zones with the main road to facilitate the next areas of project development.

 

There was commencement of archaeological surveys, road condition surveys, topographical and ground penetrating radar surveys and environmental impact assessments completed to support the turbine programme planning and allowed commencement to complete.

 

THE PROJECT IN NUMBERS:

Peak energy generation capacity:  24MW from the wind turbines

Number of repower wind turbine: 12no. 2MWe 

Landmass utilisation: 22 million tonnes of landmass removed and used in reconstructed access roadways

West Chevington Farm, Morpeth, UK

 

Revolutionary sustainable living development, designed around the principles of operating independent of the grid to combat emissions and energy security. Commitment was made to deliver a highly ecological and high performing, environmentally friendly living space.

This basis was the perfect partner in delivering renewable energy to support and facilitate off grid electricity, and being rural manage the use of gas as heat sources. Dynamically designed solutions which include large scale solar solutions, air source heat pumps, high capacity battery storage and global leading Co2 removal; all generated locally harnessing green energy, minimising grid and gas dependency whilst delivering carbon neutrality.

This project is a showcase in how the future can hold access to localised green energy schemes delivering phenomenal results to communities and allowing net zero to be reached in line with the climate energy goals.

 

Project highlights are carbon removal, 108kw ASHP, 5000kwh of PV and 200kWh of storage.
