shentongroup Supplies New Tedom Centro T100 CHP for Prestigious Housing Development

Shentongroup, the specialist supplier of power generation and energy support systems and  sole UK provider of the highly acclaimed Tedom CHP units, has won a contract from Imtech Aqua Building Services to install the newly launched Tedom Centro T100 into the impressive Kingsland Wharves housing development in London.  

Shentongroup beat off stiff competition from five other companies to win the prestigious order, which also includes supplying a Tedom Micro T30 CHP system.

The Kingsland Wharves development comprises of new apartment buildings located around the historic Kingsland canal basin on the Regent’s Canal in East London.  The area is a conservation zone and has been sympathetically developed to include the restoration of heritage warehouses for commercial, retail and housing use.  A joint development with the local Council, a housing association and property developers, the scheme has been developed to comply with environmental requirements including BREEAM and local building efficiency codes.

The two Tedom CHP systems will supply heat and electricity to a total of 207 dwellings, split 58 dwellings in two blocks and 149 in 7 other blocks.  The Tedom Centro T100, which will be installed in a purpose-built underground plant room, will also serve a surgery at the base of one block, an artist’s studio and several commercial units located across the project.
Commenting, Geoff Robinson, Contracts Manager at Imtech Aqua Services said:  “As the project was novated to give Imtech Aqua Services design responsibility, we had to ensure we had a CHP system that would fully meet the client’s requirements. Service before, during and at commissioning stages was therefore very important. Shentongroup has provided us with support and service through all stages of the project, attending meetings alongside us so that all parties were fully aware of what was required to ensure the successful completion of the project.”

The new Tedom Centro T100 series, marketed by shentongroup under its powertherm label, are natural gas powered units producing maximum electrical output of 101Kw, 400V three phase, 50Hz at 1500rpm, with a maximum hot water output of 147Kw and a standard water off temperature of 900C.  The smaller Tedom Micro T30 natural gas powered unit produces a maximum electricity output of 30Kw, 400V three phase, 0.78 power factor, 50Hz at 1500rpm and has a maximum hot water output of 62Kw and standard water off temperature of 900C.  The two CHP units will be maintained under shentongroup’s Infinium24 programme, which is a scientifically designed and monitored “perpetual renewal protocol” that constantly renovates and re-engineers components before their projected replacement date.

“We were restricted with plant noise levels due to the fact that the development is residential and there are neighbouring housing developments which had to be met as part of the planning approvals”, concluded Geoff Robinson.   Shentongroup helped us to achieve noise levels that were substantially lower than those specified”.

With the flexibility to support both inside and outside applications, shentongroup is able to supply a range CHP systems under is powertherm label.  The 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.
