The Radisson SAS Hotel at London Stansted Airport is a modern 500 bedroom hotel and is unique as it is the only hotel at Stansted Airport with direct access to the main terminal building. With an extensive range conference and health club facilities and swimming pool, 4 individually designed bars and restaurants the hotel also has Europe’s only Wine Tower which contains 4000 bottles of wine.
As part of a company wide Responsible Business programme, the Radisson SAS at Stansted works particularly hard on counter balancing its carbon footprint. The Hotel enforces a Responsible Business programme passionately by making a conscious decision in favour of the environment and social issues. As part of this programme Radisson SAS wanted to improve the energy delivery for heat and electricity.
Working with Radisson Hotel, Cogenco supplied, installed and commissioned a 300kWe cogeneration unit to deliver heating, hot water and electricity on a 24 hours seven days a week basis. By using the CHP the hotel annually saves significant energy costs. The environment savings in CO2 emissions exceed 300 tonnes per year.
In recognition of their energy saving programme Radisson SAS Hotel London Stansted Airport was awarded the GOLD rating by the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
