An Edinburgh Hospital


SSE Utility Solutions is responsible for providing an operation, maintenance and repair service to the Energy Centre at a Hospital in Edinburgh. With 800 inpatient beds, the Hospital is home to regional centres for both Cancer and Clinical Neuroscience.

Operating round the clock dictates a constant demand for power and heat. The Hospital meets this need with its on-site Energy Centre, comprising a 1MW CHP gas turbine engine, a waste heat boiler capable of producing 1 tonne of steam per hour, and 3 dual fuel boilers which are each capable of producing 20 tonnes of steam per hour.

As a further back-up measure, the Energy Centre is also equipped with two diesel generators, one 800 kVA and 1 x 725 kVA which provides sufficient resource to run the power supply should the need arise.

SSE Utility Solutions has been contracted to provide the Energy Centre services until
