Blackpool Victoria hospital to cut annual energy and maintenance costs by 274,000 pounds

U.K. facility to upgrade the heating and hot water supply in 10 plant rooms, introduce a reverse osmosis system and update the steam trap population


The Blackpool Victoria Hospital in the U.K. is expected to cut annual energy and maintenance costs by £274,000 by upgrading the heating and hot water supply in 10 plant rooms, introduce a reverse osmosis system and update the site’s steam trap population, according to an article on the Health Estate Journal.

The new system replaces shell and tube calorifiers, some of which had been in operation for almost 40 years. 

“The system was simply no longer efficient when compared to modern equivalents,” said the hospital’s energy manager Carla Wilson. 

“Previously, we had to store water at 60°C to eliminate the risk of Legionella. That water could be sitting there quite a while if there was no demand for it in parts of the hospital, and all that time it would be losing energy.” 

The energy-saving measures are forecast to reduce Blackpool Victoria’s carbon emissions by more than 1,400 tons per year.
