CooperOstlund completes peaking plant CHP installation05 July 2018

Gas engine specification and maintenance services provider, CooperOstlund, has completed its first UK peaking plant installation.

The project saw three, 2.7MW combined heat and power (CHP) gas engines installed at a site in rural Derbyshire.

CooperOstlund joined the project halfway through. With a quick turnaround essential, the firm turned months of stagnation into activity and progress.

The engines were quickly removed, floor and engine cell levelled, followed by a full re-install, allowing the site to be commissioned and set live immediately.

Now fully operational, the plant is running at optimum efficiency – generating more than 8.1MWe energy to support the National Grid in times of peak demand.

Stuart Cooper, director at CooperOstlund, comments: “We were appointed just in time to rescue the project – which had struggled to get off the ground and was draining resources. Thanks to our team’s expertise, it was possible to quickly correct mistakes and ensure commissioning could be completed just a few weeks later.”
