CHP reduces energy costs at Scottish hotel

The shentongroup’s innovative Combined Heat & Power (CHP) system, powertherm has been installed in the Crieff Hydro Hotel. Known as Scotland’s most comprehensive family and child friendly resort, Crieff Hydro has installed powertherm as part of its environmental policy and to reduce energy costs.

Powertherm is supplying the hotel with 75kw of inexpensive, green, electricity, and catering for the hot water supply for its showers, baths, heating, swimming pool, spa baths, laundry and kitchen. In addition, it will compliment the use the resort’s existing power generator by providing standby power to the hotels, bedrooms and bathrooms. This was an additional benefit to the hotel as it is located in an area that has been prone to powercuts.

"The powertherm CHP unit is an excellent innovation, doing precisely what was promised and performing well", said Joe Carmouche, Engineering Director at Crieff Hydro. "The assistance and advice we have received from the shentongroup has been first rate and we are delighted with the results and the additional standby power which is enabling us to provide our guests with an even better product".

powertherm’s engine technology gives 84.5% package efficiency with thermal recovery, enabling the units to provide an outstanding energy output compared to fuel consumption as well as shrink a company’s carbon footprint. Utilising a low emission natural gas engine, powertherm offers a pre-engineered package design, which reduces up-front engineering, site design and installation costs. The design encompasses all CHP components within an acoustic enclosure, providing improved noise rating (60 dB(A) @ 7m).

With the flexibility to support both inside and outside applications, powertherm’s CHP technology recovers waste heat to provide heating, hot water or even air conditioning. This reduces overall energy consumption and thereby enables commercial and industrial customers to offset gas and electricity consumption. The system’s very low exhaust emissions ensure that powertherm complies with or exceeds UK regulations.

"Powertherm will provide us with a relatively short term payback", concluded Joe Carmouche. "As we have received a interest free loan through the Carbon Trust, our investment is proving extremely worthwhile."
