CHP plays key role in Docklands development

CHP, Veolia

London has taken a further step forwards in becoming a sustainable city with the adoption of Veolia’s latest CHP technology in the £billion new Docklands development at Royal Wharf. Designed to supply low-carbon energy, this latest application includes a 1 MW(e) CHP unit and will power 20 000 Londoners in five years and contribute to reducing London’s carbon emissions by 60% by 2025.

Royal Wharf is the biggest new Docklands neighbourhood since Canary Wharf was built. It will house a new community in 3385 modern homes and businesses.

The CHP unit will take pressure off the grid and reduce carbon emissions by 1800 t a year.

This CHP unit uses technology such as selective catalytic reduction to reduce NOx emissions to 95 mg/m3 at standard temperature and pressure and has an electrical efficiency of 43.5%.
