It says the 8MW heating system will be ‘the largest installation of its kind in the UK’ and will provide low carbon heating and hot water to 6,700 new homes and half a million square metres of new office, retail and commercial space.
The project, which will include 8MW of heat pumps, is expected to supply more than 80% of the total heat requirements of the site, alongside other low and zero carbon heat sources.
The installation is expected to start its operation in 2023.
