Imtech to deliver significant savings at Swindon Hospital

Added on: 05/11/2018

Imtech has secured an energy efficiency scheme at the Great Western Hospital (GWH) in Swindon to reduce its’ carbon footprint and deliver cost improvements to frontline patient care.

Partnering, once again, with the Carbon and Energy Fund (CEF) Imtech’s Low Carbon Solutions team identified various infrastructure energy saving solutions that aim to reduce GWH’s carbon footprint by 2,300 tonnes per annum. The solutions to be delivered across the hospital estate include; provision of low carbon energy via a new CHP unit, phased migration to LED lighting and redirection of waste heat back into the system.

Following the implementation of the infrastructure solutions our experienced engineers will take on the vital role of ensuring the systems are operated and maintained to optimum levels over the next 15 years. The team, working closely with the CEF, will continuously monitor and report on the carbon reduction and energy savings.

‘We are delighted to have secured a further scheme via the CEF Framework,’ commented Andrew Dobbie, Operations Director, Imtech Low Carbon Solutions ‘This builds on our successful energy saving solutions currently being delivered at both Harrogate and Sheffield Hospitals and continues to strengthen our capability in the low carbon and healthcare sectors.’
