Shenton Group supplies CHP for apartments
Micro CHP has helped a development of contemporary apartments in Mitcham, Surrey, meet Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable homes. The two CHP units supplied by Shenton Group for the £19 million Brenley Park development are 30 kW 3-phase Tedom Micro T30 units powered by natural gas. They also deliver 62 kW of heat as hot water at 90°C.
To meet the standards of the Code for Sustainable Homes, these units have no NOx emissions and achieve an efficiency of 95%.
The CHP units supply heat and electricity to 169 dwellings in eight blocks. As heat demand varies, the units can modulate their output, maximising savings by enabling them to stay on for more hours a year.
To minimise noise levels, the CHP units are in sound-proofed containers to reduce noise to 60 dB(A) at 1 m.
The units will be maintained under Shenton’s Infinium24 programme that constantly renovates and re-engineers components before their projected replacement date.
