CHP helps ensure reliable electrical supply for genome research campus

Published:  03 April, 2014

Dalkia, CHP
With an electrical output of 2 MW, this CHP unit operated by Dalkia helps provide a reliable electrical supply and efficient heat at Wellcome Trustís human genome campus.

Dalkia is ensuring a reliable and stable power supply for Hinxton Hall Ltd (HHL), a subsidiary of the Wellcome Trust, with the operation and maintenance of a 2 MW(e) CHP unit. The unit will also maximise energy-efficient heat and power production for the facility. HHL provides facilities services to the Wellcome Trustís human genome research facility.

The Wellcome Trust is one of the biggest medical-funding charities in the world. It has an obligation to advance general scientific and medical awareness. HHL supports the trustís own research and provides facilities for conferences, seminars and training at the human-genome campus.

HHL has a significant demand for heat and power across the site. In addition, the research facilities demand a stable and uninterrupted supply of electricity to support the delicate processes undertaken.

The CHP unit operations alongside an absorption chiller, modern and efficient ancillary plant, a modular plant room and a cooling tower. Dalkia provides 24-hour surveillance via its service centre and mobile engineer network.
