Project Overview

We designed & built the low-carbon energy system for the 2014 Commonwealth Games development in Glasgow. The 1.68MW CHP energy centre connects to a 28km district heating network and supplies heat and hot water to 704 homes, Emirates Stadium, Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, a community center, nursery and a 120 bed care home.

We are responsible for operating and maintaining the site to make sure that all equipment is properly maintained and in working order. Our responsibilities include planned and reactive operation and maintenance services of the energy centre, district heating network, Heat Interface Units (HIUs) and smart metering system installed inside individual dwellings and buildings.
