The Lister is a 480-bed district general hospital in Stevenage and is part of the East and North Herts NHS Trust. It offers general and specialist hospital services for people across much of Hertfordshire and South Bedfordshire and provides a full range of medical and surgical specialties. The £2.7 million upgrade of the energy centre includes a 1.4MWe CHP and three new boilers delivering heating, hot water and electricity to the hospital. The Lister’s energy bills will be reduced by an estimated £0.65 million annually.
Working in partnership with Dalkia, a new combined heat and power plant (CHP), was installed. A complete boiler house refurbishment has also been carried out consisting of three new steam raising boiler plant (one of these being linked to the CHP as a waste heat/fired boiler), waste heat pipework and replacement of steam calorifiers in the sites central plant room with new PHE.
The contract provides an upgrade of the 40-year old energy centre and a 15-year CEM contract. The £2.7 million upgrade of the energy centre includes a 1.4MWe CHP and three new boilers delivering heating, hot water and electricity to the hospital.
Lister Hospital’s new combined heat and power plant, has secured the hospital’s electricity, heating and cooling needs for the foreseeable future. The £2.7 million project, which included the clearance of a £1.3 million repairs backlog in the Lister’s heating and hot water systems, brings many immediate benefits.
