Scottish facilities management firm FES FM has been appointed to operate the energy centre for The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA) and two on-site hotels, which will showcase renewable technologies contributing to the city’s position as the energy capital of Europe.

The company, which has an office in Aberdeen, won the contract for the energy centre that will provide the facility with clean, sustainable, and reliable energy.

The multi-million pound venue, which is being delivered by Aberdeen City Council and its development partner Henry Boot Developments (HBD) and is being constructed by Robertson Group, will open this summer, providing a new world-class facility close to Aberdeen International Airport and the new city bypass.

TECA will attract increasing numbers of visitors from local, national, and international markets due to its capacity for attracting global events.

The 12,500-capacity main arena will host conferences, exhibitions and music concerts, and is expected to attract major artists and events to the city. The facility will also boast three 2,000 square metre multi-purpose halls, four multi-purpose conference rooms, and nine meeting rooms.

The inclusion of energy centre will mean it will be one of the most sustainable venues of its type in the UK. The energy centre’s combined cooling heat and power (CCHP) facility will use various technologies to provide power, heat, and cooling to TECA. At the heart of the CCHP is the largest hydrogen fuel cell installation in the UK. Originally pioneered by organisations such as NASA, fuel cell technology now provides a well-proven commercial heat and power solution, delivering significant air quality improvements over conventional power generation methods.
