Mansfield Halls in Kendrick Student Village provides accommodation for students at Reading University. For the purposes of the project the site is divided into Blocks A-F with a total of 457 bedrooms and Block G with 147 bedrooms and 14 studios.
SAV Systems installed 3 x LoadTracker CHP with 15kWe/30kWth capacity each and 3 x 1,000 litre heat storage vessels to provide the heating and hot water for the accommodation.
Around 105 tonnes of CO2 emissions are reduced per annum by using a CHP system instead of a conventional mains supply/gas boiler system. This will also result in financial savings of nearly £29,000 per annum, compared to a mains supply/gas boiler system.
