Find out how The Energy Desk assisted Seaham Hall with their energy requirements.
Built in 1791, Seaham Hall is one of the finest 5-star Hotel and Spa facilities in the North East of England boasting luxurious and spacious surroundings for guests and visitors to take advantage of. Seaham Hall is also home to the award-winning Serenity Spa, where many flock to unwind and utilise their extensive spa services.
As a large hospitality site with multiple services, there are significantly high demands on heat and power to continuously provide for the guests of both the Serenity Spa and hotel.
Seaham Hall contacted TED for assistance with their sustainability and energy procurement requirements. Following an Energy Health Check enquiry from Seaham Hall, The Energy Desk collated and analysed the sites data, as well as conducting a full energy review of the hotel and spa facility. From this, our partners TED Generation then reviewed the results and calculated the feasibility of installing a CHP system on the site.
With the Seaham Hall site essentially divided into two distinct buildings, each with their own utility infrastructure and individual in-coming mains electricity (individual MPANs), the task ahead required thought and planning. In addition to this, the Hotel and the spa also have their own gas main connections and separate heating loads.
As the hotel and the spa each have their own utility infrastructure – individual in-coming mains electricity (individual MPANs) and also each site has their own gas mains connections, this enabled TED to look at both sides on an individual basis, with its own CHP installation proposal.
Based on the analysis of the Half Hour electrical grid data provided, TED Generation proposed a 100KW CHP unit be installed at the hotel and another 100KW CHP unit to be installed at the spa.
The initial analysis of the data for the whole site shows that given the high electrical demand the units could look to run constantly throughout the year and this would generate the following after allowance for service downtime:
Both the spa and the hotel started receiving heat and power at a guaranteed discount rate against the prevailing rates on the grid, with day 1 savings. TED Generation covered the full capital cost of installation, on-going service and maintenance through the life of the Agreement.
As part of the overall commitment to no capital outlay to the hotel, the capital costs of the two bespoke enclosure installations that comply with the aesthetic and surroundings, as requested and overseen by the 5-star hotel, have been covered.
The specific benefits for each section of the site include:
