Metropolitan has been awarded the contract to adopt and operate the district heat network serving three phases of the Hallsville Quarter development in Canning Town, London for 25 years.
Hallsville Quarter is part of the £3.7billion Canning Town and Custom House Regeneration Programme being undertaken by the London Borough of Newham. When complete, the new town centre will consist of more than 1,100 new homes and 23,330m2 of hotel and commercial space.
As a first step, Metropolitan has ‘adopted’ the existing heat network and energy centre which serves the first two phases of the development. The company is now working with developer Linkcity on the designs for future phases, including the replacement of the small CHP engine now in service, with a much larger and more carbon-efficient 1.2MW CHP engine. Specifying the optimum pipe sizes for the network and reducing costs with leading-edge design, will result in lower carbon emissions, operational efficiencies and ultimately reduce customers’ tariffs.
