Vital Energi to develop new energy centre for Royal Arsenal Riverside

Vital Energi, energy centre

Vital Energi is to undertake the design and build of a £4.9 million energy centre at the Royal Arsenal Riverside project. The company has been working on the project since 2006.

The contract involves the design of a temporary plant room to serve the development while enhancing the existing energy centre, perform building works and then install a new low-carbon energy system.

The finished energy centre will house a 1.2 MW(e) CHP engine, with the infrastructure for a second similar engine to be added as the development expands. There will also be four 3 MW gas-fired boilers, reuse of the 70 000 l thermal store, and HV and LV electrical design and controls systems.

Regional Director Rob Callaghan commented, ‘We are delighted to continue our involvement on one of London’s largest urban-regeneration schemes. It has been fantastic to witness the transformation Berkley Homes have brought to this development and the expositive effect it has had on the wider area.
