Key heating contracts for the Olympic energy centre have been won by boiler manufacturer Cochran and burner manufacturer Dunphy.
Cochran which will be provide four boilers, and Dunphy will supply eight burners to power the energy centre which will power all of the hot water, heating, electricity and some of the cooling needs of homes and buildings in the Park.
The Olympic Delivery Authority has adopted a centralised approach to energy, deeming it to be more efficient.
Located at Kings Yard, the energy centre is a cornerstone of the ODA’s Sustainable Development Strategy.
The site, which is currently under construction, will include eight large dual fuel TD640 burners from Dunphy. The eight burners will fire four twin furnace boilers from Cochran, each rated at 20MW.
One of the boilers will be fired by biofuel supported by natural gas. The other three boilers are fired by natural gas and gas oil.
To limit emissions, each burner will be fitted with Dunphy’s Ratiotronic 6000 digital combustion control system, variable speed drives and oxygen trim.
Dunphy managing director, Sharon Kuligowski said: “We are delighted to have been appointed by main contractor, Elyo, to supply the burners for this prestigious site.
“Dunphy has an excellent track record in supplying combustion equipment for carbon neutral and low NOx heat and steam generation using all types of biofuels, recoverable organic wastes and solvents.
“Sustainability is the key focus of our design engineers and our investment in the biofuel testing labs located next to our main manufacturing plant in Rochdale has proved to be instrumental in enabling us to take a lead in this market.”
