Replacement of the existing ageing steam boiler plant with new Heat Pumps will significantly increase efficiency, whilst addressing the Trust’s critical backlog maintenance and improving resilience.
The three existing steam boilers are being removed with a new low temperature hot water system installed. This will be in-situ before the steam system is removed, guaranteeing continuity of energy supply to the hospital.
The project has been funded by the government’s Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme, following the successful award of a £19.5m grant. Breathe has worked closely with the Trust to model the optimum technical solution, whilst meeting the eligibility requirements of the funding.
