The £12.5 million Energy Centre on NHS Grampian’s Foresterhill site in Aberdeen was commissioned to serve the current and future energy requirements of the Health Campus
Constructed within the grounds of a live hospital, the new Energy Centre delivered under Framework Scotland supplies steam and electricity to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary Campus
The project includes a gas turbine CHP unit that can support approx 90% of the campus electrical demand (5.3MW). The combustion process also produces waste heat which contributes to a large proportion of the campus heating requirement (8.5MW thermal energy). The CHP unit exceeds the project specification and has the capacity to generate extra energy in case of future developments on site. In this way the energy centre is ‘future proof,’ and will have a long operational life.
A 1.5MW biomass boiler uses renewable fuel in the form of locally sourced woodchips. Steam from the boiler is distributed across the campus, providing heating, hot water, catering and decontamination.
In addition, two 8.5MW and one 6.5MW dual fuel boilers act to provide back‐up thermal energy. These boilers can operate on either gas or light oil, increasing fuel resilience.
