Healthcare facility renovation expected to save £15 million in 25 years

June 15, 2017

A £7 million investment in Harrogate District Hospital in the U.K. is expected to produce more than £15 million in efficiency savings over the next 25 years, according to an article on the Harrogate Advertiser website. 

The Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust said the investment would allow the multi-million savings to be re-invested into patient care. 

Approximately £1 million has been spent on the electrical infrastructure, including a new standby generator with extra capacity, increasing the resilience of the hospital site. 

Two of the original hospital's inefficient steam boilers, have been replaced along with new heating equipment across the site. The Trust's existing CHP (combined heat and power) engine has been optimized with to divert any low grade waste heat, which would normally go into the atmosphere.
