Vital Energi are working with speciality chemical manufacturer, Solenis, to reduce the carbon consumption at its Bradford site through a new 17-year partnership to upgrade and operate the site’s energy centre, futureproofing the site’s production capabilities.
Solenis is always looking for ways to run its sites more sustainably, enhancing growth while decreasing environmental impact.
Vital Energi will upgrade the existing combined heat and power (CHP) system and install two new efficient steam boilers. A new control system will be installed to ensure efficient and reliable energy generation.
Once the construction process is complete, Vital Energi will operate and maintain the energy centre under an Energy Services Agreement (ESA). This agreement is targeted to optimise availability and energy use guaranteeing the projected carbon and financial savings for the next 15 years and setting the foundations for further carbon reduction initiatives.
Key members from Solenis, Vital Energi and consultancy JRP Solutions, who supported Solenis, came together to mark the start of the ground works on site. They were joined by local councillor, Sarah Ferriby.
“We’re really pleased to be adding to our growing number of industrial clients, helping forge the pathway to net zero for Solenis and improving energy supply resilience across their site for the next 15 years. As well as the fundamental works on site, we’re also delighted to be delivering a host of social value initiatives which will benefit Solenis employees, the local community, and beyond.”
David Calder, Site Manager at Solenis added, “Entering into a partnership with Vital Energi is an important step for Solenis on our journey towards Net Zero and ongoing sustainability for the site.”
