Centrax To Provide Gen-Set At Scotland Hospital

Posted on November 17, 2010

Centrax is set to supply the gas-turbine generator set at a new energy center at a health campus in Scotland, saying that it will reduce the hospital’s carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 20% and cut costs by US$3 million (£2 million) per year.

The combined heat and power center at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s Foresterhill site will feature a natural gas-fuelled Centrax generator set, powered by a Rolls-Royce 501-KB7 gas turbine, combined with a waste heat recovery boiler. There also will be a biomass boiler fired by woodchips for renewable energy and three dual-fuel boilers running on gas and light oil.

The Centrax package will produce 5.5 MW of electricity plus 12 tonnes of steam per hour, as well as reduce CO2 emissions by 17% or about 4500 tonnes a year at Foresterhill. The new center will also generate about 90% of the Foresterhill site’s electricity.
