The Radisson Edwardian Manchester opened its doors in 2004 on the famous Manchester Free Trade Hall site, with the ambition of providing the city’s first 5* hotel service, whilst generating low energy costs and a very low carbon footprint. Owned and operated by the Radisson Edwardian Group, the 263 bedroom five-star hotel was built on the famous Free Trade Hall site and carefully preserved the listed Italianate frontage.
The 206kWe CHP unit was installed on the 16th floor of the Hotel and had to be positioned with the use of a crane during the build stage. The unit is surrounded by an acoustic enclosure with anti-vibration mountings to prevent noise.
Since its installation the Hotel’s CHP unit has saved over 3,242 tonnes of CO2, the equivalent of saving 324,200 trees.
